Color Recipe @ Stamp Fairy Challenge

Good Morning I am a little worse for wear this morning!
Hmmmm lots of white wine for my Birthday!
I was sent so many beautiful cards thank you all!
I will post a picture in the week as there are still a couple in transit.

Ok so for today's challenge at Stamp Fairy
I have made a project that I have been wanting to do for a while... and thanks to Gerda for Designing a bear for me to use on my Home-made marmalade...

I Asked Gerda a little while ago if she could design Lenny with some fruit as I LOVE Lenny so much and wanted to glam up some marmalade I had made.
She's done an awesome job you can find Lenny with lots of different fruits too!
Here >> Lenny Fruits <<

So this Challenge is a colour challenge
Kraft, Melon and Turquoise

So the colours were on my side and I used the honey dew melon colours and set about finding some papers to go with the Kraft card stock that I love so much.
being Lenny is my favourite image he is a real pleasure to colour, and as always my colouring choice is distress inks... I really love the Hello Luscious Basic grey pad but every times I make a card with it there is a little left over and this time I chose to use some of the left overs to make my project! and I am trying to play along with 
in the quest to use some of my paper mountain!
The sentiment was also printed on scraps which I save and then clue with repo to a sheet of Copy paper and then printed the tags
added some Jute and a little flower, the punch is a EK Success doily punch.
I wanted to make a card also so having printed Lenny again I wanted to make like a summer fete style card with bunting I keep seeing it everywhere and desided to try and make some so mine is hand cut! and added with jute, tehehhee, The Card Candy I did not have any orange candy so these are white candy coloured with distress inks... The Kraft I have stamped with a leaf stamp from a Hero arts playful animals set as that was the only leaf near to an orange leaf I had.. I also used some vintage style core card and some black glaze pen on his nose... and a few highlights of white gel pen too!

Being its Monday there are a few great challenges that had been posted over the week that I wanted to join in with and as I was Busy with my Birthday and friends visiting I did not get a chance to play until today so here they are:
