My pic at Colour Create.

Back again to share my card with you for the Colour Create challenge that's running for the next fortnight.  Loved all your pastel cards for the last challenge and seems like you did too!  We had loads of fabulous entries - check over on the blog to find out who the lucky winner of last week's challenge was!!

Onto the new challenge and here's the picture I've chosen:

Isn't that the loveliest!  And your colours are Baby Pink, Black and White with the optional extra of tulle.  Hope you likey!!

 I used another wonderful Simply Sassy image from Sugar Nellie.  I got out lots of my gorgeous soft pink and floral papers to use and wanted to use the gingham as an accent.  But the layout just seemed to work better with the gingham paper on it's own. I stained the  chipboard borders with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and then threaded my tulle through.  The letters are one of the very first crafty things that I bought five years ago - can't remember who they're by but I still love them! 

My gorgeous buddies over on the Colour Create Blog have made some awesome cards to show you so hope that you will be inspired by them and get a chance to join in with us over the next fortnight.

Can I also just say thank you for still visiting me and leaving me comments!!  I really feel that I'm not being the best blogger at the moment - just not enough hours in the day!  I really do appreciate your comments though - they also feed into my emails at work, so they're like a little ray of sunshine when I'm calculating salaries and dealing with system meltdowns at work!!
Big hugs and I'll try and visit soon!!

Love this black and white gingham background with the pink Sassy and tulle. Super little pearl accents! Beautifully coloured. Great inspiration too, Julie, it's a shame that I don't think I'll be able to play. Love Lesley
