Our next challenge at Colour Create - No 71

Ok, just where are the weeks going!!  It'll be Christmas before we know it at this rate, and I'm not ready!!  I'm working in a constant mess in my little craft room as I just don't have time to clear it up  - it's very much push it back and pile it up at the minute! 
Back to Colour Create and this is the picture as chosen by our lovely Sylvia, Great room - but who's been sleeping in my bed?
19 May - Challenge 71 - Sylvia
Looks like it was Mama Bear judging by my card as I've used this fabulous Teddy Bea digi image.  It's just reminded me of when my Holly was little and used to sing the Three Bear rapping song at primary school - ahhh, time  goes by too fast!!
Anyhoo, the colours are Brown, Cream and White with one other colour. As always we have an optional extra for you - buttons and flowers for this challenge.
As you can see, I've gone with pink as my extra colour, and used lots of buttons and flowers.  The little crochet flowers were an NEC purchase and the other petals were from Crafty Emma's.  My Magnolia Doily lace die has been lost to me forever, sob, so I punched a strip of white paper with  a Martha Stewart Doily lace punch and edged the image with this.  I also repeated this with one of the flowers to make a lacy petal which looks quite sweet.  The leaves are a Crealie Die which I got from Joanna Sheen,  Oh and I think the papers were Basic Grey but my desk is to much of a mess to be sure!!!
My super-talented teamies  at Colour Create have got some wonderful makes and cards to share with you so pop on over. This is a fabulous neutral colour combo too, and with the addition of one colour of your choice, I'm sure we going to see some fabulous entries into the challenge.  We've got a great sponsor too -  High Hopes Rubber Stamps with a fab prize of the stamps below!!

As always, I'm struggling with commenting - please say I can give up work!!.  Still it does pay for this addiction even if it doesn't get the commenting done!  Take care and I hope to catch up with you soon.
