Colour Create Challenge 57 Varieties!!


He-he!!  Yes, that's what we hoping to see for Challenge 57 at Colour Create this week  - lots of variety!!  Our lovely Di has chosen a gorgeous selection of colours - Mint Green, Black, Cream and Gold with the optional extra of fireworks or sparkle.  Here's your inspiration picture:
4 November - Challenge 57 - Di..Black, Mint green, gold and cream

Never mind the challenge, who wants those shoes!!!!  Aren't they just fabulous!!! 

Enough of the distraction, here's my card.
I've used this gorgeous Sweet November image from CC Designs, and coloured her with my PMs with lots of stickles for her hair.  The papers are a mix of Penny Lane frome MME and Basic Grey.  I cut the stars from an old Harrods catalogue as the colours were perfect - one side was the mint green and the other gold - only the best, darling!!  I've gilded most of my edges with a gold leaf pen and the sentiment is a rub-on.
 I've followed the sketch over on the  Sketch and Stash challenge blog and am also entering the following  challenges with my card:

Cooking it Up With Katie - Texture (glittery hair), Swirls and Black
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lots of Embellies
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes

We're being sponsored by one of our regular sponsors , Michelle's Scrapbooking,
for this fortnight's challenge so lots of goodies there to tempt you in!!
The team have the most gorgeous cards to share with you so don't forget to check them out here - so loved these colours and not a combo that I've tried before but that's what a challenge is all about!! 

This will probably be my last post now until Sunday as I'm off to the NEC on Friday with my best buddy, Lesley - our first visit and I'm so excited!!!!  Enjoy your weekend whatever you're doing!!
