Summery shades for Bright Blossoms

Have you visited CAS Colours and Sketches yet?  This month I am temporarily taking on the role of Hostess and my first challenge is a colour challenge featuring these summery shades

They are three of my favourite colours and I was inspired by the lovely weather we've been having lately- the barbecue has been out at least twice over the weekend! I started by stamping a background paper, whilst I loved it I couldn't work out how to make it CAS, so I've put it inside my card! You can see it on the second picture.  I've used Bright Blossoms stamp set, some DP, a sticky 'brad', some paper twine, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party cs and a sentiment from Whacky Wishes.

It might be a little overcrowded to be truly CAS, but I do love the fresh feel of the colours.  I also played around with the positioning of my three blooms and decided I liked them off centered, as you can see.
Do go and have a look at the cards from the rest of the DT and then have a go, can't wait to see what you will come up with for these colours! Happy Crafting!
