Colour Create Challenge Week Seven - Red and Green....

I hope you can join us for this week's challenge over at Colour Create. We have another lovely colour combo for you and the Design Team cards are fantastic - the girls never fail to come up with the goods and it amazes me how different we all are in our creations too! The optional extra is 'wings' which I hope will be nice and easy to cope with. I've adopted a simple style again for my card, I'm really enjoying showing off a bit more white on one or two of my cards lately.

Image - The Greetings Farm
Dragonfly - unknown
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Papers - from my scraps
Die - Sizzix Leaves
Punch - EK Success Medium Retro Flower
Colouring - ProMarkers
Embellishments - Brads and Gems from my stash

I've had such a busy weekend with it being Georgia's birthday and the house has been full to bursting! She is now officially a teenager but she didn't come downstairs like Kevin the Teenager this morning saying 'It's so unfair', lol! I must just say a huge thank you to all of you lovely peeps who sent her cards and goodies this weekend, you are so wonderful and it really made her day....... I know she will be thanking you all individually and putting piccies on her blog very shortly. Hmmmmmmm, I'm asking myself 'who has the most stash now?'...... maybe I'll go rummaging in her stuff for a change, hee hee!

Hi Tara, your card is fantastic! I love how you left it with quite a bit of the white background showing, it really shows off the gorgeous and beautifully coloured image and those fantastic flowers and dragonfly. So glad Georgia didn't turn into the archetypical teenager overnight LOL and also so glad she had a great birthday. Chris xxx
