Chocolate Baroque Take Two

Hello there,

I hope that you're all looking forward to the long Easter weekend.  I'll be spending much of it with my Husband, Children and Grandchildren, so aren't I the lucky one and I hope that you'll all be doing something that makes you happy too.

I'm here today to share with you the second card that I've made for the colour challenge over at Chocolate Baroque.

I started by dusting over some white card using Memento Pear Tart and Lulu Lavender and then used the same colours again over a Harlequin stencil. Next, I stamped the flower from the Chocolate Baroque 'Wild Meadow' set with Adirondack Cranberry and then I painted it using the same ink.  I used the ink on sponge daubers go go around the edge of the card to give a greater depth of colour.

Having got to this stage, I realised that I hadn't yet used the forth colour in the challenge.  The card that I created was quite subtle and I thought that adding another colour at this stage would probably spoil it, so I decided that I would mount my finished card onto Kraft card...problem solved and I actually quite liked the look of it once I'd got it all mounted.

I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
