Colour Create Challenge # 11

Happy Easter Sunday to you all. Are you all full up from all that chocolate yet ?!!

This week on the Colour Create Challenge Blog we are all chocolatety too. This week's colour combo has been chosen by our very own talented and "Master of Magnolia" Tab who has chosen brown, beige and cream and with the optional extra being distressing.

The base card is from a pack of scalloped cards by Papermania.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey Archaic.

The brown card is Core'dinations which I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Traffic Jam folder and the distressed using a Heidi Swapp distressing tool and sandpaper. I then added some string from my local garden centre.

The photo corners were punched with an EK Success photo corner punch and the brads are from my stash.

The tag I made myself and added some wording on my PC.

The image is by Mary Hall and is available at Funky Kits. This has been coloured with distress inks.

I hope you all have a great day and enjoy yourselves whatever you are doing.

Take care and thank you all for your lovely comments which I really appreciate.
