Phew...how cold is it out there? The snow is now melting thankfully although I do love snow but it is so inconvenient. Luckily I had Monday booked off as holiday from work and I couldn't go in today either....the road outside is like a skating rink and the trains are barely running anyway. We had ten hours of snow on Monday, doesn't it make everything look so pretty, I took a few pictures and may be able to use them on cards come Christmas.
What was exciting this weekend is the start of the new challenge blog that Tara has started called Colour Create. I am loving challenges at the moment so the more the merrier. I had a couple of other cards I needed to make this weekend which I cannot post just yet but will in time. As I am at home today it gave me time to make my entry for this challenge. The brief for this challenge was to make a card only using green, pink and brown. You can also use white or cream for your card stock and flesh colours for skin. These colours are so gorgeous together it wasn't hard to come up with something.
The elements I used for this card are:-
Papers - Dream Street Papers - "Her own wings - Faith" and "Her own wings - Courage"
Pink Bazzil Bling
Image - Whiff of Joy
Image coloured with Promarkers and Copics
Nestabilities - Label Two
Glossy Accents used on the party hat
Flowers - Prima
Brads - Papermania
Button from stash
Sentiment generated on my laptop
Why don't you hop on over to Colour Create and have a go at this challenge. I forget to mention that there is some lovely blog candy on offer if you enter....always a bonus and an extra incentive to join in.
