It has been a couple of weeks since I last did one of these challenges and just managed to get this card finished before the roast chicken dinner was ready!!
I apologise for the photos - really must invest in a decent digital camera! It's also tea-time here in the UK, so the light is pretty dim.
I hope you like the card - I really enjoyed making it. I wanted the outer rectangle to look like a frame, but it may be difficult to see that from this picture. I just love the Season of Joy set - it's so versatile. Where I've used dimensional foam pads to adhere the flowers to the card and bent the petals of the flowers slightly upwards it reminds me of water lilies floating on a pond!!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by :). If you would like to know more about the Color Inspiration Challenge, you can visit Kristina Werners Blog.

Here is the card I made for the 'Color Inspiration Challenge #42' over at Kristina Werners blog
I really enjoyed using these colours and making the card - i started off trying to do "homework" for the "A Year in cards - February 2009"and ended up with this for the Color Challenge!
I really enjoyed heat embossing those little flowers at the bottom, but you can't really see them all that well on this picture!
Thanks for looking!
