ATSM Challenge #111

Hi, thanks for calling around.
It's time for a new challenge at 

This week our sponsors are

who are giving away 5 digis to the winner

This is an
challenge, so the world is your oyster, so to speak.
The DT are dedicating this challenge to one of our original DT members Marie ( who is currently on the DT for our sister challenge Addicted to CAS. She is going through a really rough time at the moment and we thought it would be nice to get a linky going in her honour just to cheer her up a little. So if you would like to send your best wishes just link your project as usual to the ATSM site and mention Marie in your post if you would like.

Here is my card for your inspiration.

I was influenced by a couple of challenges while making this card.

Black and White plus one other colour

a sketch

( rotated and mirrored it)

and the 

I chose lime for my extra colour as my friend Di is redecorating using this as a focal colour and it went well with what I had in mind for the flower. Nich bought me some flowers for lending her my car when her's was stolen and one of them was a spray of chrysanthemums in lime green as well as one in white.  I used an old Sizzix daisy Bigz die cut several times in copy paper and also in the green card for the center. The leaves are cut down MB Fresh Foliage and Grove Branch. The white panel was cut from the Tessatina Border also from Memory Box. I went with a black panel after the picture at The Cutting Edge inspiration photo but went with a white base for added contrast.
OK that's a wrap as they say. 
Pop over to the ATSM blog and check out what the rest of the gang have made to inspire you and join us.

Thanks for stopping by, come back soon.
