City Crafter Colour Challenge

Good Morning ... did you all have a wonderful Valentine's evening? ... I appreciate that there many of you who have partners in the military or for one reason or another cannot be together ... but love is carried in the heart no matter what right?
So on to this weeks challenge at City Crafter ... where Kirsty is hosting for us  ... this week it is a colour challenge and as Kirsty likes to take us around the world .. our city is Tokyo ... though it doesn't mean that you have to make a card / project based on the city ... like me you can just follow the colours to enter ....




 I confess this weeks' photo did leave me a bit stumped ... sometime I just over think things ... but in the end the light bulb went on and this is what I came up with ...



My background paper is from Tim Holtz and the lovely image is a freebie from Cemerony ... 


I actually had this little umbrella embellishment in my stash ... can you see the little turquoise beads?


some little yellow buttons and some turquoise gems follow the colour scheme ... my sentiment is computer generated and the tag is SB ... 
Ok ... so not very Tokyo(ish) and I bet there are lots of you brilliant crafters out there who can combine the city with the colours ... (unlike me) ... so please come and join us ... we have the very talented Yvonne Yam as our guest designer and as ever ... there is a prize for the winner ... and if you need any inspiration hop on over to the blog and check out the rest of the DT's creations ... see 'ya there!
