Colour Create Challenge # 16

Good morning everyone and a very wet one it is too.

Wow, what an amazing amount of entries we had last week at Colour Create. You obviously like the colour combo of blue and green ! Let's hope you like this week's combo just as much.

This week, our amazingly talented Kim has chosen the colour combo of sky blue, tan and ecru (or blue, brown and cream !!) with the optional extra of gloss, glitter or glaze (or all three if you want to !).
I would like to pass on my huge, huge congrats to Kim who has just made it onto THE Magnolia DT !! How fantastic is that ? Well done Kim ! The chaps at Magnolia will not be disappointed.

So here are the colours for you this week :

Here is my card for this week's challenge.

The base card is some cream Bazzill.

The patterned papers are by The Paper Salon and I have had these for ages. I stamped a border stamp around the edge of the blue paper in Versacolor Smoky Blue but it doesn't show up on the photo very well.

The image is a Leanne Ellis stamp from Funky Kits and she has been coloured with ProMarkers. I added some crackle accents to the hearts, some glossy accents to the flowers and some liquid pearls to the strings on the hearts.

The flowers are a mixture of Hero Arts and Prima and I have sprayed these with glimmer mist. The brads are by BasicGrey.

The lace and ribbon are from my stash. The brown ribbon is beautiful as it is one of those two-tone ones that shines both blue and brown - gorgeous.

The sentiment is by Craftwork Cards.

I also added some shimmer dots from Papermania.

You must hop over and look at the DT's creations this week, they are amazing !

We hope you enjoy this week's challenge as much as we did.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments which you may leave. I do appreciate all of them. Have a great week and see you soon.

I would also like to say a huge thank you to Kimmi who passed these awards onto me a little while ago. Thank you darlin ! If you haven't visited Kimmi's blog, you must. She makes the most fantastic cards and she has the most adorable little girl called Poppy and she is a very brave lady herself. Go on over and meet her and leave her some lovely comments, I know she will appreciate them.
