The house of colors

Hi all!
 As I was wandering from blog to blog, I came across the Color room website where, every weeks, they propose a new color scheme. Although at first I thought that I would pass on this one as the scheme did not speak to me, I then thought "It wouldn't be a challenge if it was easy so go ahead and do it".
I went through my stash then I decided to go for a masculine card. I thought that I would play it simple so I used the background plain as white was part of the scheme and stamped the three other colors directly on the card. I then decided to bring the colors once more with the "rosasse" and  the sentiment.
Overall I think it is a success. I actually was surprised how easily I pulled it off and how well it turned out.
I too think that it is successfull as a masculine card as Iain did like it a lot (and we all know how difficult mens cards are hard to pull off...).
Anyway, enough talking, here it is.



Here is the scheme. As you see they propose a sketch as well.


Thank you for looking and for your comments!

That's a fab card - I agree, men's casrds are tough. Have you seen our challenge at CCW?
