Colour Create Challenge No 80 - Lime, Aqua and White


So lovely to think it's Thursday already, nearly the weekend.  The other thing about Thursdays means it's time for our new challenge at Colour Create with this wonderful colour mix being chosen by my fabbie teamie, Sharon L.

22 Sept - Challenge 80 - Sharon L Lime Aqua & White

When I chose this wonderful image, Winifred, by Mo Manning, I'd had in mind to add to my Christmas card count and make a card all frosty and crispy!!  However, I came across these gorgeous WRMK papers, Vintage Blue, when I was trying to decide what papers to use and thought they were a match made in heaven with the inspiration photo.   
So, I'm not really too sure if Winifred, as a wintery sort of image, goes with these more springlike papers, what do you think?  I still like the overall card though, which is the main thing, I suppose.  The corner ribbon slot die cut and ribbon are new purchases from Sandown at the weekend, I did enjoy it!! The butterfly is an MS punch, and is also the optional extra that Sharon has chosen for the challenge this fortnight.


My lovely teamies at Colour Create have made some yummy cards for the challenge, so pop on over and take a peek.  Oh, and we have a little DT call going out this week, so if you think you'd like to join our happy little band of colour fanatics, why not apply!!
See  you over the next fortnight!
