Colour Create 52 - Pastel lilac, Pastel mint and Pastel Yellow

It's Colour Create time again - thank you all for the fabulous entries for my challenge over the last fortnight - wow, I think is the word I'm looking for!! 

This fortnight's challenge has been  chosen by the gloriously talented and gorgeous Dena!

What a lovely colour combination eh! Oh and the optional extra is to use a doily ( which I forgot and had to do a quick fix!!)

 There are some truly stunning samples by the DTs over on Colour Create so do take a look if you get a chance you won't be disappointed!  This time around, we're being sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts so I hope you can join us to be in with a chance to win a £15 voucher to spend in their on line store!
For my card, I used this great Mikey and Madison digi image from Charmed Cards And Crafts.  I wanted to make a first wedding anniversary card for my niece and husband so this seemed perfect.  My papers are a bit of a hotch potch really!  The gingham is from Doodlebug, the mottled green is from the most fantastic sets by Prima which I bought from Crafty Emma's store here. This set is called Annalee.  The floral paper was actually very kindly donated by my matey, Lesley, at the weekend, when I stayed with her while her hubby was away!!  This was from a Wild Rose Studio set, Floral, which can also be bought from Emma's when it's in stock!!! 

I used this week's wonderful sketch from Friday Sketchers - I think this is why I forgot about the doily for Colour Create!  However, I think I covered it off, by making this little flower doily as I couldn't add anything to my layers!  I cut the frill off a larger one and then ruched it round the back of a punched circle and added the pearls!!  The 'proper' flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'll be back on Saturday for the launch of the very first challenge over on Crafty Emma's Challenge blog so hope to see you then!!

Hi Julie,

I love your colouring - so soft and pretty!
The layout looks great and what a clever way to add the doily - definately looks like it was meant to be there all along :)
