Colour Create Challenge

Happy Easter everyone. I hope that you all received lots of eggs and chocolates today. Tab has chosen the theme for Colour Create this week, and I must say it couldn't have been timed better! Our colours this week are lovely chocolaty ones - brown, cream and beige. The optional extra this week is distressing.From what I saw of the DT cards before I went away, there will be some tremendous inspiration over at the challenge site today. I love distressing but normally have a tendency to overdo it. I thing I reigned myself in enough this week.

Papers: Papermania - Antique Cream tones and cream embossed card
Image: Sarah Kay
Flowers: Prima and Papermania
Ink: Tim Holtz distress ink - vintage photo
Ribbon, pearls, wire, doodling pen and water colour pencils from my stash.
I hope to be back online at some point today so that I can catch up with some commenting.

Sharon, I've been cruising through your blog and wanted to make sure you know just how spectacular your designs are. I love how you are able to balance out a bold embellishment with a soft color pallette or vice versa. Beautiful outcome, that's for certain. And this card, WOW!!! The plaid in the bow is terrific, the whole thing is amazing, I love it.

And thank you so much for the warm welcome, I surely appreciate it. Tremendous inspiration indeed!!
Enjoy your weekend,
