Colour Create Challenge

What a fantastic party fortnight we had at Colour Create ! Thank you so much to all of you who entered the challenge and entered my blog candy. Please check out the Colour Create Challenge Blog to find out who won what prizes and also the two guest designers that will be joining the team. Please also check out the rest of the DT's blogs as I know that some of them were also offering candy to lucky winners.

I am pleased to announce the winner of my blog candy .....

Many congratulations to KIM PIGGOTT ! Well done Kim, I shall post your goodies off to you !

It is with great sadness that I have to announce that this will be my last week with the Colour Create team. I have been with Colour Create right from day one when Tara set up the blog and it was such a hard decision but I am hoping that I might just find that extra hour in the day that we are all looking for !

I would like to thank all my teamies, past and present for their kindness, inspiration, support and all in all, just for being some of the best friends ever ! Thank you so much Sharon for everything you do for Colour Create, the hard work you put in and for keeping the challenge blog so successful. Thank you also for being such a fantastic and supportive friend. Someone please pass the tissues..... :o( !

My final challenge was chosen by the very talented and lovely Janiel

The colour combo is RED, BLACK and OFF WHITE with an optional extra of SILVER or PEWTER BRADS.

The DP's are Bo Bunny Double Dot and DCWV "The Green Stack".

The image is a Stamping Bella "Ketto" stamp called "Phoebe Ketto". I have falled in love with this gorgeous little stamps ! She has been coloured with ProMarkers. I have inked the edges of the image with black soot distress ink. I also added some stickles to her wings.

The ribbon is from my stash.

The gems are by Kaiser and I created the heart by using a Bazzill Basics template.

The sentiment is by Elzybells and was just perfect for this week. I dedicate this card to my friends on Colour Create.

There is a fantastic prize of a $15 voucher for Whimsy Stamps for a lucky winner.

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

Don't forget the blog candies I have on my blog ! Links to these candies can be found in my side bar. Just click on the pictures and they will take you to the posts - couldn't be simpler !!

Please visit the rest of the DT's blogs, their projects are just breathtaking again this week.

Much love everyone !
