Colour Create # 10 - Duck Egg Blue and Rose

Good afternoon peeps!

OMG, I got so carried away with having a spring clean in the kids' rooms today that I forgot to post my card for Colour Create! Anyway, here it is now and you'll see that I inked up one of the gorgeous Messy Rabbits for this card. I have a friend at work who is shortly leaving to have her first baby and so I thought I'd have a card at the ready....... just need to put together one for a baby boy now!

I hope you'll be able to join us for this week's challenge as Judy has picked a scrummy colour combo and I'm sure you'll get all the inspiration you need from the wonderful DT cards. It's been nice taking a back seat and letting the other girlies pick the colours each week and at least I can't get the blame if folks don't like the choices, lol! That doesn't mean I don't go to bed on regular ocassions dreaming up new colours and options though - I am a bit of a dreamer it has to be said!

Anyway, I'm taking my little man over to the park now whilst it's still nice so I'll leave you with my card and stop waffling on!!

Hi Honey - fab card. Love those Scruffy Rabbits (oops must stop calling them that - MESSY rabbits).
Fabulous layout and your faux stitching in so neat (I had to get myself a new sewing machine as my faux was so scruffy or messy!!)
Great distressing on your embossing.
