Paper Players Challenge #2

Welcome to our 2nd Challenge at Always Playing with Paper! I'm posting a little early!  Our challenges officially start on Sundays...but I set the linky for one hour early! LOL!!!  I was just SO excited to share our first Colour Challenge with you!!  Thank you to all the stampers who joined us last week!! We LOVED checking out all of your crafty creations! 

So here is our vibrant Colour Challenge!  Brilliant Blue, Old Olive, Bashful Blue and White! If you do not have these exact colours, please feel free to use colours that are similiar!

This week's Inspiration Photo was taken by talented photographer Tracey Washington of Inspire Me Photography.  The image is a picture of her daughter's cute summer flip flops! Her blog Inspire Me Photography, is full of gorgeous inspiration!  Thank you Tracey for sharing your talent with us!!  Be sure to drop by her blog to check out more of her work!

Here is my card using the colours from Tracey's inspiration photo:
I inked up the "Elements of Style" Set.  I have to admit, I have never used Brilliant Blue on a card like this!  Usually I used this blue on line art cards.  I love this colour and wish I had used it more.  It is retiring but Pacific Point is coming and it is also a gorgeous bright blue!  I cut out the flowers and added them to my main panel.  Of course I had to use some of my Old Olive satin Ribbon.

Here are the FABULOUS Paper Players and their GORGEOUS samples!!!  I just LOVE what they have done with the colours!  To visit their blogs please click on their photos located in the sidebar.

I am having a very hard time picking a favorite. I would love to know just how you tie your Bows so perfectly. Love the addition of the two small and one medium pearl. Will check back next week.
