Colour Create Challenge

Don't forget to enter my BasicGrey Blog Candy ! All you have to do is CLICK HERE !

I really must learn to read the challenges properly, I am on the Design Team after all ! The colour combo this week is Hot Pink, Dusky Pink and Ice Chocolate. Now when I read this upcoming challenge my brain said "brown and pink" so I used brown and pink ! I suppose I have got the dusky pink in there and when I see brown I automatically think of chocolate anyway, whatever the shade ! All that is missing is the HOT pink but I think you can forgive me for that one. At least I remembered the swirls and pearls this week ! hehehe!

So now you know the colour combo for this week and the optional extra is swirls and pearls - gorgeous challenge for you.

The rest of the DT's cards and creations are absolutely stunning and the rest of my teamies are such an inspiration - such very talented laydees !

The base card is Bazzill Kraft.

The brown card is Core'dinations.

The DP's are K&Company "Classic K"

The image is from the Sugar Nellie Autumn kit. This kit is absolutely gorgoeous, the images are just stunning and I can't wait to use them all. I have of course used my trusty ProMarkers. I've just got up to find the pens only to find I've been super efficient and put them all away ! Sorry ! I do know her coat has been coloured with the new ProMarkers Dusky Pink and Burgundy and her trousers in Chestnut.

The swirls around the outside are from an Inkadinkado stamp my lovely friend and teamie Rica sent to me earlier in the week with some fabby images for me to try my hand at too - thank's again darlin !

I also stamped the same swirls underneath the flowers. These have been punched from an EK Success retro flower punch and daisy punch and pearls from Quixotic Paperie added to the centres.

The ribbon is from my stash.

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances transfer.

Please hop over and have a look at my teamie's creations this week and we look forward to seeing your fabby creations too !

Only 2 more sleeps til Ally Pally on Saturday ! I'm so excited. I have been let out on good behaviour ! and I'm meeting up with some of my lovely blogging buddies and teamies. Can't wait to meet you girls !

Hope you all have a great day. Thank you for your visit and for any comments you leave.
