Getting Sassy for Colour Create!

Hello there - yay, it's Thursday, which means not only that it's nearly the weekend but also time for our next challenge at Colour Create!  The colour combo is shown in the picture below and has been chosen by the lovely Liz on the DT and the colours are Pink, Blue/Grey and Cream with the optional extras of flowers or gems.
13 January - Challenge 61 - Liz pink, blue/grey,cream

We're being sponsored by  our fab regular sponsor Michele's Scrapbooking for this fortnight's challenge so I hope that this will spur you on to make as  many gorgeous cards for our this new challenge as you did for our last one!

As I said, I'm getting Sassy and I've used my very first Simply Sassy stamp, Fairy Tale, from Sugar Nellie.
 Now I have to confess, that these have been a bit of a slow burner for me and I wasn't too struck by them at first.  However, I've seen more and more fabulous cards using them in blog land that I finally succumbed and bought a couple (which arrived next day delivery!) - now I think I'm hooked!!  She was an absolute delight to colour too!
I followed the current sketch over on Sketch Saturday - I just rotated  it to better suit my image!!  My papers are a mixture of Prima Annalee and Basic Grey Two Scoops, the senitment is Cat's Life Press, the paper flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and this fabby chiffon bloom is from Bo Bunny - love it!!  A bit of distressing and here she is!!

I'm also going to enter into the latest Basic Grey challenge where the theme is Spots and Dots - I hope I've fulfilled this with my pink spotty paper and my candy spots!!  As I've also used Basic Grey paper, I think this qualifies!

Hope you can play along with us this fortnight!
