you're a hoot *** quand le hibou fait ooo-ooo-ooo



Today, I will keep the details brief. I am a sick puppy :-( Been fighting with a cold and fever. BUT...!!! I wanted to participate into Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #3 challenge. The colors we had to use are (SU names): Orchid Opulence, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Simply Black and Whisper White. I also used the Card Positioning System Sketch #57 for inspiration.

So here's my card. It was put together literally in 15 minutes which is a huge feat for me! Let me know what you think about it!

Aujourd'hui, je m'en tiens au strick minimum puisque je combat une rhume et la fièvre. Mais il y a toujours quelques chose pour égayer nos journées... pour moi ce fut le défi que Kristina Werner nous a lancé. Son défi de couleur #3. Les couleurs à utiliser (dans le language SU) sont Opulence orchidée, Rose rouge, Tarte au potiron, Simplement noir et Murmure blanc. Je me suis également servi du sketch #57 qui vient du site Card Positioning System. J'ai assemblé cette carte en 15 minutes... un grosse conquête pour moi! Voici ce que ça donné pour moi. J'espère que vous aimez!

Sorry that I can't write my post in French, but I adore your card! It's my first color challenge, and I found it a bit difficult, but you seem to have had great success!
