Colour Create Challenge # 9

Good morning everyone ! I hope you have all remembered to move your clocks on an hour ?

We had the most fantastic evening and went to see Ski tap dancing in her dance school's production of The Wizard of Oz - it was and she was absolutely fantastic. Yes, I did sit and cry when she came on stage ! It's a Mum thing !

Back to Colour Create. Well, not only do we have a fantastic challenge for you this week but you should see the mountain of BLOG CANDY Tara is offering this week - it is enough to make me wonder why I agreed to be in her DT !!!! (only kidding hunny pie !!). Would you believe she has even managed to get her hands on some of those hard to come by Anya stamps from The Greeting Farm !

This week's challenge has been set by our very talented DT member Sharon.

The color combo for this week is blue and lilac and the optional extra is swirls and ribbons - easy one for you this week !

This is my creation :

The base card is white Bazzill and again, I based my card on the sketch Rica made for the BasicGrey Challenge yesterday - I loved it that much !

The patterned papers are BasicGrey "Lilykate".

The lilac card is from the Papermania card stack. The corner stamps I have used on the card are from Tesco would you believe. I found them lurking and needing a home because our Tesco seem to think we don't like crafting anymore and so have removed nearly all of their stock apart from a few very lonely items.

The raffia ribbon is from Hobbycraft.

The Zoomz are by Robins Nest and are from Simonsaysstamp.

The pearls are from my stash.

The image is a Sarah Kay image called "Anyone for Apple Pie" and I adore it. She is of course coloured with ProMarkers. Ivory and blush (skin), cocoa (hair), lilac and amethyst (hat and apron), cornflower and china blue (dress), cocoa (shoes), sandstone and cinnamon (basket), grass, forest green and ruby (apples), meadow green and grass (grass), cornflower (flowers).

The rest of the DT have made some amazing cards again this week and that is definately worth a look !

Have a great Sunday and have a great week.

I shall be back on Wednesday when it is the launch of the brand new challenge blog Simon Says Challenge and they have BLOG CANDY too !
