KW Colour Inspiration #33

Here's my card for Kristina's latest colour challenge. I based it on a sketch by Lauren Meader, and I did plan on having a sentiment where it is placed in the sketch, but I had the paper and ribbon stuck down before I remembered and I didn't like my chances of getting it to stamp nicely then (let alone it then being too close to the top). Still, I like how it turned out and in fact I am glad I didn't stamp the sentiment now!

When I first saw the colours I had no idea what I was going to do with them. I decided to rule flowers out, and have lots of Teal because I am on a real kick lately, and then started looking at my remaining stamp sets... as soon as I saw Ocean Commotion and thought of Guylian chocolates and it was a done deal lol. Hmm, this is becoming a trend isn't it, being inspired by chocolate... but there are worse things so it's all good, hehehehe.
