Daring Cardmakers - No Black, No Neutrals

This week Svenja has challenged us to create a card with:

No Black, No Neutrals

"I'd like to see colours galore on your cards and absolutely no black and no other neutral colours. (You are allowed to have some white.)"

At first I thought this would be quite an easy one but I kept having to stop myself reaching for the black inkpad and twice for kraft cardstock!

My original design had some balloons a cat and a bunny on it but I ended up liking the stamped background so much that I ditched most of that and just went with the greeting and a little silver ribbon to make the background the main design on the card. I made it using a small piece of Speedball Speedy carve with a triangle cut out of it just made myself with a craft knife. I then pulled out some colourful inkpads and stamped all over a white card blank. The greeting in the middle is printed from the computer in a nice indigo/navyish colour. That's the cool thing about computer printing with a challenge like this you can have any colour you want so it's a little bit easier to dip way from the neutrals!

The stamped background is so adorable - I can completely understand that you went for "just" this! Great, great take on the theme. Love it.
