Just Add Ink #31 - A Colour Challenge

Wow,  I can't believe we're up to our 31st challenge at Just Add Ink!  That's incredible!  Thankyou to everyone who participates, who visits our blogs and especially those who leave me and the DT such lovely and uplifting comments!  I truly treasure them.

This week's challenge is a colour challenge.  So with the colours decided, and the stamp set HAD to be my current favourite - Friends Never Fade (yep, I got it out again!), all I had to work on was the layout.  So here it is...

So, what do you think?  The background was time consuming, but it's one of my favourite backgrounds to do - repetition using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  The double bow is quite easy to do.  I don't do mine in exactly the same way, but check out this tutorial by Ilina Crouse to see how you can do it.

And here's the colour challenge palette:
