Colour Create Sixteen - Sky Blue, Tan and Ecru

Good morning folks!

I'm going to make this post uber short today because I have housework and washing just screaming out to be done. I've tried to ignore the noise but it won't go away! I also want to get stuck in to some card making later on, because how often do we have that on our agenda and then realise that the day has gone before we've had a chance to get started. I'm determined to enter a couple of challenges this week so I'd best get my organised head on!

The Colour Create challenge is brought to us this week by our lovely Kim and the colours are just scrumptious. Hop over and take a look at the cards and projects the Design Team have made, they're sure to inspire you to have a go.

The optional extra this week is to use gloss, glitter or glaze and I'm hoping you'll be able to pick this up on my card today. I use glossy accents on the bicycle frame and tyre.

Image - Hanglar
Sentiment - Stickers from stash and Digital Download from Shabby Princess
Papers - Basic Grey Granola and Papermania
Colouring - Polychromos
Embellishments - Twine and Buttons from stash
Accents - Distress Inks and Glossy Accents

TFL and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
