Hello and welcome to challenge #57 at RETRO RUBBER.  As you can see, this one is all about this colors and we want you to make your cards using them. 
My card was made using a super cute stamp set from Penny Black called Fairy Sweet, which I've own for over 4 years, I adore this little baby Fairies, here is my card.

No automatic alt text available.

I stamped the image onto a panel of Strathmore mixed media paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers and an aqua painter, I added some shading and highlights with Prismacolor pencils.  The little Lady Bug was stamped onto red card stock and fussy cut, the flowers on the left were die cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits dies by Stampin' Up! 
The pattern papers are from a discontinued line from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Simply Camellias and the lace border was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
                                        Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Potted Primroses.

I like the way your fairy manages to look angelic and utterly mischievous at the same time. The colours shine here and look so very vibrant and joyful.

Another beautiful example of your coloring expertise, Maria! I look at the shading and blending of the fairy's details and just say "wow". So many wonderful details and textures, but my fave is the ladybug!! Jan's comment about angelic and mischevious is spot on!!
