Colour Create Challenge

Good morning ! A bright and sunny one it is too for a change although there is a nip in the air this morning. My DH is very pleased that its bright sunshine this morning as he voluntarily helps out a local firework company "Northern Lights" and they always put on a big display in the town. He is going to be out all day and night setting up the display and firing later on so dry weather is good news !!

This week at Colour Create we have a fabulous colour combo for you which was chosen by our very talented DT member, Karen. Thank's darlin, it was a fantastic colour combo to work with.

So, the colour combo for you is blue, white and silver and this is the photo for your inspiration this week

I decided, along with the rest of the crafting population it seems ! to make an easel card. Wow, these are so simple, yet so effective. I can see why everyone is having a go at making one.

The gorgeous DP's are Heidi Grace Designs "Frost Blvd./Crystal Snow" and I picked them up from the Hobby House stall at Ally Pally. I have since been on their site and you can buy it online. I wish I had bought more as it is so beautiful. I also used for matting and layering some blue Core'dinations and some silver card.

The image is Toodles and Binks Skate and the sentiment/verse is also by Toodles and Binks. I just love Toodles and Binks images, they are such a pleasure to colour. I coloured the image with ProMarkers and added some sparkle with a Copic Spica pen.

The flowers were punched with the EK Success retro flower punches and I added some diamond Stickles and a gem to the centres.

The skates and word "Winter" are a Sizzix die which can be found here. I also added some diamond Stickles to them both.

The ribbon, snowflake and snowflake brad are from my stash.

Here are some more photos so you can see all the card :

The rest of the DT's cards are absolutely stunning and it certainly shows that we all loved this colour combo. We look forward to coming over and see your cards and other creations.

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave, they mean so much.

Enjoy yourselves tonight at any firework parties and be safe.
