TUESDAY'S COLOUR CHALLENGE AT THE OUTLAWZ

Today's challenge at The Outlawz calls for the use of these colours:

 
... and the Christmas in July Twist is  ... 
Add a Charm

Here is my card, made entirely from my scraps box, even the embellishments are recycled :


 The gem is one that I cut off a pair of earring (one of the had lost a stone so I could no longer wear them)

The button is salvaged from a sweater I tossed out last winter and the little angel charm is from a Christmas gift tag I received last Christmas (tossed out the tag and kept the charm .... LOL!)

Unfortunately I won't be able to enter the card into today's challenge at the Outlawz because their inlinkz for July has closed already, but I would like to add it to the following challenges:
