DS4J midway challenge 76 (Colour Inspiration)

Good morning fellow friends and bloggers

Hope you are all well and enjoying your week.  Thank you once again for your comments and time in visiting my blog.

Been a busy day for me today, took my dog for a long walk.  Tried to find a missing cat lol , Housework, DT Work, My boys Oh boy do they ever grow up lol and then cleaning again at 9 pm as the dog decided to bring in muck in my house on his paws, so cleaned the house then gave him a bath oh yes plus did the shopping too.   Oh my I'm totally exhausted and pain gets so much worse when I do too much.

This isn't due out until morning but wont be up that early so will be posting now.
Please join in , I think these colours together are just amazing!

This is a midway inspiration post for DS4J Challenge no 76! 

The challenges theme is a colour inspiration from the photo below and a twist of adding ribbon or twine. 

Here is my card for this challenge :

This challenge is hosted by Margaret: 

Hi, my name is Margaret and I live in sunny Southern California, USA  I live almost on the high desert so our summers are quite hot and the winters can get below freezing.  It allows for a lot of time to stay indoors year round and be creative.  I have been on the design team for DS4J for about 10 months.  Today I am delighted to present my challenge to you.


Here is the photo for an idea of the colours we want used for this challenge: 

Photo Inspiration

You can enter what you want as long as you use the colours and add the twist of either ribbon or twine. 

Please use a stamped/Digi stamped image. 

You can enter your card here: DS4J Blog

The card I created is a center step card and the image is called Misteri mystery dancer and you can buy her here:  Misteri Dancer Digi Stamp

I coloured her in using my Pro markers. 
I used Pre cut dies from spellbinders, Martha Stewart die cut for the butterflies. Twine was Red and White but I coloured it in with my blue Pro marker to match my colours lol.

The paper flowers are handmade and you can find the tutorial here:  Paper Flower Tutorial

The sentiment and rest of my embellishments are from my stash.
