Charisma Cardz Week One - A Colour Combo


Hiya folks!

Thought I'd enter the Charisma Cardz Challenge this week with a card I made to give to a really close friend who has just left my place of work. It really isn't the same in the office without her and I miss her lots ;o(

The colour combo for the challenge is pink, cream, chocolate and toffee.......mmmmm, just the mention of those colours makes you want to make a frothy mug of hot chocolate filled to the brim with mini marshmallows! I used the last of a scrummy set of papers which I think are Bo Bunny and chose another gorgeous Hanglar image holding the tag which I stamped with a Studio G sentiment.

I'm quite pleased with how the card turned out because I had to make it in a bit of a hurry...... sometimes I spend ages on a card and then don't like the end result, so maybe this is the way to go...... throw it all together and you'll be happy, lol!

Have a great day everyone and stay warm..... that wind sure has a bite today!!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
