February Colour Challenge

Thank you to everyone who had a go at Lythan's Belts and Braces dare last week, those were some really fun cards!
It's Leo here today and as it's the first week of a new month it's the colour challenge and I've picked out this image to take colours from to inspire your cardmaking this week:

Soft grey and warm yellows and oranges. I think these colours say 'February' here in the UK. Mostly grey skies but with little bits of yellows and oranges popping up in the first signs of spring.
I do find these colour challenges great for using up scraps as I'm often going to my box of off cut papers and jar of random embellishments to see what I've got in those colours and making up little kits with what I've found to put together my card with. Do you find that too? Maybe let us know in the comments this week how you use these colour challenges. If you need more inspiration check out the samples the design team have come up with this week:

Hi Leo,

Tried going to your blog to comment on your wonderful card but its not displayed there so I'm leaving you a comment here. Just GREAT!

I also tried to go leave a comment on SHARON'S page about her thank you card, but there is no place to do so. When I click on the "comments" button no box comes up to leave some ♥ in. Perhaps if she is not getting comments this is why, and thats sad coz her card is really nice.

Hi! I just love this challenge, because for me it really is a challenge when I usually don't use this colour combo.
I was just wondering why I can't leave a picture of my card when I link up? I think it's much "easier" to visit the other bloggers when you get a first look at their creations in the challenge.

Hi Jenny - we're pleased to hear you have "risen to the challenge" this week ;)
In reply to your query about the lack of thumbnail pics on the Inlinkz - you have to pay extra for that facility and as we're not affiliated to any companies etc (we do this just for the fun of it) it would have to come out of our own pockets.
