Colour Horribilis' Challenge

Over on The Playdate Cafe they are having a Colour Horribilis Challenge. You have to use the colours Navy Blue, Hot Pink and Mustard! Well, how could I resist, LOL. I made a square card blank with Navy card and then topped it with a square of mustard card that I had run through the Cuttlebug using the Script folder. I stamped the flower images (Paper Artsy Petals Plate 2 for the large image and Paper Artsy Asian Plate 4 for the smaller images) and the sentiment (Stampscapes) in Midnight blue StazOn onto pink card, then mounted them onto Navy card. I used the sketch from PolkaDoodles who also challenge you to use only 3 colours.

Ooh, you made a good job of this one, Jack - scary colours but you've made them work so well. That central flower is one of my favourite all time stamps, lol.
