I thought I'd have a play with one of my old sets from Stampin' Up today - Jar of Love hasn't seen much love from me lately lol!  My colours were inspired by the challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches  who gave us these three colours to work with - 

I don't have Calypso Coral but I do have an old SU Cameo Coral which is very similar - as most of the colours are.

I tried to keep in with the rules for the CAS and only used very little embellishments such as a few dimensionals on the flowers and on the label.  I did use one other colour also, Soft Sky for the jar and the water.  I stamped off the main colours inks too on some of the flowers just to give them a different hue.  There is a touch of Wink of Stella on the flowers and in the water.

I am also putting this in for Watercooler Wednesday's Challenge this week which is Marsha's Feminine Challenge.

What a lovely card, Fiona! You've really shown off the Jar of Love beautifully. The colours compliment each other so well, too. A great way to combine challenges! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Wow Fiona, I really like the way you've worked the colour challenge colours into your card. You're right the similarity betweent Calypso Coral and the old Cameo Coral isn't that distant. The floral images are simply awesome and I love the layout of the card. Thanks so much for sharing at the Watercooler Wednesday "Feminine" Anything Goes Challenge this week.

This is such a lovely card, your use of the challenge (and replacement) colors work so well with Jar of Love. Thanks for joining us at watercooler Wednesday Challenges!
