Colour Create Challenge # 10

I feel so chuffed with myself that I managed to do my blog makeover all by myself (with the aid of a kit and some instructions of course) and I love it ! If I was to do it again, I would do some parts of it differently but on the whole I was surprised how easy it was especially as I have never, ever tackled anything like this before ! No doubt I shall be dreaming about blog codes for the next few nights !!

Gosh, don't I waffle ?!!

This week on the Colour Create Challenge Blog......

Your colours this week are Duck Egg Blue and Rose Pink and the optional extra is stitching whether it be real or faux.

This is my creation for this week.

The base card is Bazzill and I am so sorry that I have no idea of the colour (well, I know its blue !).

The patterned papers are BasicGrey Marrakech. The pink paper I distressed with a distressing tool and ran through my Cuttlebug with the Textile folder.

The image is Constellations by Penny Black and this has been stamped with Tim Holtz China Blue distress ink. The edges have been distressed using Antique Linen distress ink.

The flowers are Prima.

The brads are Papermania pearl brads.

I cut the tags freehand and used a Clare Curd sentiment from her sentiment set.

The ribbon is from my stash.

The pearls are from my stash.

I took inspiration for the layout of this card from Friday Sketchers

The colours of this card are a lot more subtle in real life. I had a terrible job taking a photograph of it and it did not matter how or where, the colours were just not like in real life. I wonder why this sometimes happens ?

The rest of the DT have yet again blown me away with their fabulous creations so you must go and have a look and leave some lovely comments for them on their blogs.

Have a great Sunday !
