Colour Create No 75! Don't think mine are quite right!!!

Hello there, - you might need your sunnies for this card, as my cream is more gold, my aqua is more green and my pink is virtually non-existent apart from her skin.
This is the picture for our new challenge at Colour Create as chosen by our fabulous Di.  Well, I look at it and all I can see is Green and Gold but my wonderful teamies have clearly seen something very diffferent - or perhaps they read the text and didn't just look at the picture!!
14 Jul - Challenge 75 - Di
Di has chosen Aqua, Cream and Pink as her colours, a beautiful colour palette but mine is definitely more Green and Gold!! At least I got the optional extra of Ribbon right!! Shame, 'cos  I was pleased with the end result!! (Note to self - make sure you read the words!!!) 
Anyway, I've used this fabulous and new Sweet Pea stamp that I bought from my lovely blogging cyber sister's new online store, the Artful Splodger!  And as I went to the Craft Barn on Saturday with bestest matey, Lesley, for a day of watercolouring with a fabulous teacher, Lina McDermott, I'd thought I'd get my distress inks out and practise what I was taught!! 
Not perfect, but practise gets you there!  Anyway, I thought her hat was reminiscent of the inspiration photo too and then thought I'd add the Tim Holtz cage.  I've made the hinges from the edge of a spellbinder sentiment frame, and a few other metal pieces added round and about!  I did want to add some beads with jump rings at the bottom but only had silver ones, so had to for go these.

I rather liked the Tim Holtz sentiment ticket, Soar, with the Bird Cage theme! 
Now do go and check out the awesome creations from my lovely teamies at Colour Create and you'll see what I've been rambling on about as far as the colours are concerned!! I can't wait to see your interpretations of the colours too, and don't forget that if you do join in with us over the next fortnight, you could win a a yummy voucher to spend at Michelle's Scrapbooking, our fab regular sponsor!

Right, that's me done, and thanks so much for all your lovely comments, I really am thrilled to receive them, I know it takes time to leave comments at every blog you visit!
