May Colour Challenge Part 1

I have created this page for BIL's birthday, but I also managed to fit it into May's Colour challenge, (I think), hosted by SuperAllyFan on The criteria was to use black or white background, a B&W photo and 5 or more colours in embellishments!!! I have the black background, the B&W photo sort of, as I have re-coloured Ben in!!! And there are more than 5 different shades of blue and also some white embellies! I will see if I will be left enter it, if not the challenge gave me fab inspiration for creating the page in the first place. This is the reason I enter these challenges!!! They really give me a kick start on getting my layouts completed!

I have used Bazzill black cardstock. Making Memories Artisan Edge Blue paper. Prima Espirt Blue Flowers. Bazzill Flowers (the bigger ones). Inkadinkado Stamps (recently purchased and I LOVE THEM). Selection of brads, buttons and gems. Blue gel pen and a Sakura White Glaze pen!

I have made two of these layouts one for BIL with no journaling on it, so he can fill in what he wants. The only difference between the two is that my writing on the title changed, lol!!!!

I hope he likes it!!!!

Obviously I think this is gorgeous but then they both belong to me!!LOL!!

I love how you stripped the photo of colour and kept Ben in Blue...and a perfect title to match the page as well.

Aren't those new flowers gorgeous!!
