Colour Create Week 10

A really big 'Thank You' to all the people that entered last week's Colour Create Challenge. You did such an amazing job with my choice of colours. I was completely blown away by all the beautiful things you made. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

This week it is the lovely Judy's turn to pick the challenge colours and theme. Here is the picture she gave us for inspiration:

The colours are Duck Egg Blue and Rose. Such a pretty combination! The optional extra this week is stitching. The design team have given some superb inspiration again. This week we're joined by Nicky as our GDT. Please pop over to see her too.

Stitching is something that I love to do on my cards. I especially love hand stitching but rarely have the time to do this. However, I pulled out the stops and hand stitched my Colour Create DT card for this week's challenge.

Once again I've experimented with my new-found style of cards. I do like these type of cards, they look so pretty.

The rose colours are spot on (I know because I used Tim Holtz tattered rose on the papers and it blended so well). Unfortunately I didn't really have duck egg blue so I got as close as possible.

I opted for crystal beads and a crystal heart (which I made into a charm) as embellishments, along with diamond stickles on the champagne glasses.

I haven't decided yet if I will use this card for an engagement, wedding or anniversary, so I've left the middle blank for the time being.

Papers: Papermania double-sided silk screen paper. The blue paper was a RAK. Rose paper and pale blue card.
Sizzix Champagne glasses
Multi-shaper punch
Hobbycraft Ribbon
Clare Curd's sentiments stamp used with pick flock.
Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distres Ink
Diamond Sitckles
Crystal beads and heart from my stash
Hope you'll find time to join in with us again this week.
