Soaring swallow

As always I'm making cards on the day the challenges close; but I love colour challenges and don't like to let them pass me by, especially if I'm a bit stumped by the palette.

Layout inspiration comes from Tuesday morning sketches, palette inspiration from Nachos and image inspiration from Sweet Stampin'.

In the absence of Stamping Up colours I used Evergreen Bough distress and Raspberry and Salmon Adirondacks. The background paper is from Do Crafts (Oyster Blush) and odd bits of ribbon I had lying around. A few pearls embellies and the jewel-like colours reminded me that J is for Jewels over at ABC.

Sweet Stampin' - Birds and/or Bees
ABC - J is for Jewels
