I entered Flourishes challenge called "Colors of Love", and I loved the challenge!
I had a totally different card in my head, but in the end, I saw some MME papers and changed the design.

I used Flourishes "Humming Along" coloring everything in with Tombows and Distress Inks. After I colored the flowers in, I cut it all out with my craft knife, and adhered it to the card with glue dots. The opening into the card was cut out with a Spellbinders Heart die. I used all MME "Lost & Found" papers and Zva Bling. The hardest thing to do, was color in the humming bird, actually. After a few tries to get it's colors right, and going from memory, I came up with this one. After I colored and cut it out, I placed it on a super thick foam popdot, so it would look like it was really hovering in front of the flower.

Here is a picture of the inside of the card. Even though I was going for a crisp white card, I am happy and loving the pink music paper on the outside of the card :) Because who's heart doesn't sing, when they are in love? :)

I started off thinking I might be in over my head in this challenge, since I have never really focused too hard on these three colors. I thought I wouldn't have anything red or pink to use, but I have more pink paper and embellishments then I thought I did.
All in all, it's all for fun and to challenge me to think harder on what works and what doesn't.
