Colour Create Challenge No 83 - Turquoise, Deep Pink and Ivory

Hello everyone - it's Thursday and so time for our newest challenge at Colour Create with this fortnight's Colour Inspiration being chosen by  yours truly!!
Yes, I've chosen Turquoise, Deep Pink and Ivory, with the optional extra of Glitter and here's the piccie:

3 November - Challenge 83 - Julie, Turquoise, Deep Pink, Ivory
Ooh I love a bit of glitter and sparkle!!

I've used a  gorgeous Tilda for my image - you really can't beat them for colouring, love them!! 
I used a new deckle edged nestie and left it in the frame while I distressed the edges.  The snowflake border is from the English Stamp Company and came as part of set which I really don't use enough. The bauble is a Tim Holtz die - so glad I bought these!!

My glitter element can be seen on her pressie, the ribbon and then lots of stickle round the central mat and in the middle of each snowflake!!  I also heat embossed the snowflakes with some crystal embossing powder but it doesn't show up too well in my pics.

At Colour Create this week, we're being sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts to the tune of a rather nice £10 gift voucher!

Oh and welcome to our fab four new design team members over at Colour Create - great having you with us ladies!  They've made some wonderful cards for their debut challenge with us, as have my other fab teamies at CC so do check them out if you get the chance!!

I've had a really hectic week at home in the evenings this week, so sorry if I've not been able to visit you!  Honestly, it's so quiet at work at the moment and I could very usefully fill my time blogging but don't think it would go down too well with my bosses!!  Thank you so much for all your fab comments, here though, it means so much to me!
