Speaking of Colour Challenges...

This card was my response to a colour challenge posted on an SU! demo yahoogroup I am on. The colours were Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Basic Gray, Soft Sky and Whisper White. Oh my word! Initially I thought "I'm not even going to go there...", but then I decided that it really would be a challenge, and challenge is good! It's even better when you feel you have met it, and I think I did - I like what I came up with! To make things a little easier on myself I decided to team this colour challenge with Beate's latest sketch challenge.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Regal Rose
Stamp Sets: True Friend, Boho Friend wheel
Inks: Soft Sky, Basic Gray, Regal Rose
Accessories: Crafter's Tool Kit, 1 3/8" Circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, Bohoo Blossoms punch, Pumpkin Pie 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Regal Rose 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Soft Sky double-stitched ribbon, Fire Circle Rhinestone brads, dimensionals, Soft Sky "marker" (blender pen + refill)
