Simon Says Challenge ! First Challenge !

Good morning !

Well, today sees the start of a brand new challenge blog Simon Says Challenge and we are all so excited ! We have some fantastic challenges waiting for you, a fantastic DT to show them off ! fantastic blog candy, fantastic prizes on offer - what more could you ask for ?

So without further ado, the first challenge is..... a colour combo ! The colours are green and yellow - so beautiful and spring like.

Here is the card that I have made :

The base card is from a pack of Woodware cards and envelopes which I bought at Christmas and I forgot I had them - oops !

The green patterned paper is My Minds Eye, Bloom and Grow.

The other patterned paper and yellow paper are BasicGrey, Lilykate. I punched the yellow paper with a Martha Stewart valentine heart punch.

The green card that Tilda is sat on is from the Papermania card stack and I put this through my Cuttlebug with the swirls folder. The card isn't as bright as the green in the photo !

Tilda has been coloured with distress inks. Her top and trousers have been paper pieced with the BasicGrey papers.

The flowers were punched from the BasicGrey papers with an EK Success retro flower punch and a daisy punch. The buttons are from my stash.

The sentiment is from a set of Simon Says Stamps exclusive stamp sets "card sentiments".

The ribbon is from Cleo Crafts.

The charm is from e-bay.

I also used a black pen for doodling around the edge of the card and the flowers. I had to laugh while doodling. It was only a few posts back that I was complaining about how awful my real stitching was, it wasn't at all straight and looked a right ole mess and here I was, pen in hand trying to get the lines all wonky, I even practised doing it first on a piece of paper !!!!! What are we like, hey ?!!!

You still have time to enter the draw for the blog candy - 7pm uk time, 8pm CET

You must go over and see the amazing creations of the rest of the DT, what a talented bunch they have chosen !

I'm looking forward to seeing your green and yellow beauties !!

Have a nice day (big grin !)
