Zesty Colours at Alphabet Challenge

Please do not adjust your screen - it is me!  After all the recent vintage makes,  you might think there had been a malfunction, but no - its  'Z' for Zesty Colours - our new  theme at Alphabet Challenge this fortnight.

Bright colours - well it had to be this sassy Couture stamp from Dylusions.
For my base tag,  I used a Creative Expressions mask with Spiced Marmalade. My image, was stamped and then paper pieced with some lime green scraps, and she was given a 'face' which was scanned from a Graphic 45 paper ( I didn't want any colour).  The flowers, a Joycraft die, were coloured with Squeezed Lemonade, so lots of zesty colours. The sentiment, which is from Peerlees Designs, was 'slightly' rearranged!

I hope you will join us for this challenge, and if you need any inspiration for your zesty colours, please pop over to the main blog for lots of inspiration.
I am entering this at:
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Rogue Redhead - Paper Piecing
  Rhedd and Rosie challenge - Anything Goes
  Stamping for the weekend - Anything Goes

That's it for now, hope you all have a great weekend.
