365 Cards - #205 - Colour Scheme

It is a colour scheme over at 365 Cards today and the colour palatte we are to use is this one below. . .


I received my very first Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad in the mail today. . .doing a jig!! I found an online store in my state that sells them and the Cosmo Cricket and Sassafras Lass ones as well so I am a happy camper because it has been so hard to try and find them here in Australia. One very large scrapbooking store in Lismore said they have no call for them . . .go figure!!!!

So using my very first Basic Grey June Bug paper pad I created this card and it must have been Pam and I having ourselves in tune because this paper pad has ALL those colours listed today in the collection ROTFLMBO. I NAILED IT LADIES!!!!! The paper flower on the left is turquoise and a bright yellow paper bloom as is the top ribbon on the right side but they both look lime green here and I can assure they are not lol. I also used my brand new Martha Stewart lace border punch that I got today in the same parcel as well. . . .ain't it purdy!!!! Okay I finished in record time the challenge has been up for 40 minutes and here I am 45 minutes later finishing my post. . .*taking a bow* Thankyou very much *in my best Elvis impression*
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Fantastic. Love it. I fainted and hit my head when I read that a store told you there is NO CALL for BG 6x6 pads! I try to buy every one of them. LOL In fact there are some new ones out that I don't have. I also love the Cosmo Cricket and the Webter's Paper ones. Need to get my hands on THOSE.... I better play the lottery! hee hee
