Colour Create Challenge #1

The very first Colour Create Challenge is underway, YAY! This week's colour combination is pink, green and brown and the optional extra is butterflies.

I thought I might push the boat out for my DT card so I've used acetate, something I've never really used before except for tiny embellishments. It certainly was slippery stuff to work with, lol! Also, it's quite unusual for me not to have an image on my card, but I thought this sentiment would be a nice substitute. I do love butterflies and so it was great to use my Sizzix set to create the one on my card.

Sentiment - Computer Generated
Papers - Basic Grey Eva, K&Co Roam
Punch - EK Success Medium Retro Flower
Dies - Sizzix Butterfly Set One, Nestabilities Scalloped Ovals
Embellishments - Pearls, Ribbon and Acetate from my stash

Sorry for my short post today, I wish I could be around more to check out how the challenge is doing but me and mine are off to brave the winds in Llandudno.

Back later, byeeeeeee! xxx
