Colour at LIM

The latest challenge at Less is More is to use the colour scheme of your bedroom in your card! With the option to show a pic of said room.
I wonder how many of us dare to share with an actual pic of our room?
Well when I went upstairs to make the bed I thought I would take a quick snap of the linen as the room is magnolia, as we haven't decorated since the barn was finished. I just brightened it up with some bright colours on the duvet set. There are matching curtains still in their packet as we put up temporary ones(£10 from Dunelm sale) while we finished and as they go I have left them! (Actually we haven't finished the odd bits and bobs but we are in after 8 years of complete rebuilding!)

The colours are my fave of the moment. The whole house has a burgundy, magenta, lime green vibe in various hues. This set has a little bit of paler pink and two shades of blue dotted around as well.
Well enough of interior design here is my card.

I had to use flowers as the pattern on the duvet is. I chose two of the colours from the main panel and finished it with lime green leaves and two buds in slate blue. I used a Sizzix set of dies to create the blooms and a punch for the centers which I cut down for the smaller flowers. The leaves were cut from a Sizzix sizzlet die from Stampin Up -Little Leaves. The circular die is Large circle burst by Memory Box. I saw the small circle burst used here and it kinda stuck as I thought it a great idea. The circular sentiment is from LOTV.

Well that's about it, thanks for popping by.
I shall enter the following challenges:-
