cas-ual fridays 63

Yey it's Friday and time for another challenge from CAS-ual Fridays! We have a colour theme this week - lime, aqua and navy and our sponsor is Stop & Scrap who are offering a $25 gift certificate :)

After a comment on the blog, the Design Team got chatting about how they are inspired so I thought I'd share just a little of how I got to todays card. First off with a colour challenge I always get the closest colours of card I have to the challenge colours out on my desk. I might not use any card stock in my design but that's my starting off point. I then look at those colours and choose which I want to be most dominant/star of the stage - the colour I like the most possibly or the easiest one to fit into a design. I then think of ways to incorporate the other colours. With this weeks colour scheme my immediate thought was to use the green as leaves of some sort which left the aqua and navy. Navy was too dark to be an easy option for a flower so aqua was fixed as the flower colour which left the navy to act as an accent colour for the sentiment and card stock mat. As for which image to choose; I keep a basket of my newest products on my desk to remind myself to use what I've bought! So first off I rummage through the basket looking for something to spark an idea to fit with the plan of my colour scheme. For todays card I happened across the floral set by Hero Arts with matching dies and that led to the final card.

Love this card, Debby. Big flower, big sentiment, but big white space as well. I immediately thought man card when I saw the colours but I may change my mind, as it definitely works with flowers.
