Colour Create 14

Good Morning Everyone. Hope you're all having a great weekend. I'll try not to rabbit on too much in this post - lots of pics to show.

Well, it's Sunday so that means it is Colour Create Challenge time again. The incredibly talented Mina has chosen our colours this week and given us this scrummy picture for inspiration.

The colours are Chocolate, Cream and Red and our optional extra this week is ribbons.

Well, what's a girl to do faced with a yummy picture like that? I went down that chocolate route so fast you didn't see me for dust! I grabbed the nearest box and started altering it so that I could fill it with yummy chocolates.

The trouble is....

......I ate all the chocolates (hangs head in shame!) This week we're joined by the lovely Juliet, who will be our guest designer for May. Welcome aboard Juliet.

The sad news is that Sarita has had to step down from the DT for a while due to non-crafting commitments. We'll really miss you Sarita; you've given us so much inspiration, so please hurry back. Wishing you loads of luck in the meantime.

Ingredients:Once Upon A Time paper
Penny Black Love-tail stamp
Cream paper roses, inked with red ink and stickled. Leaves made with an X-cut Daisy die.
Anita's sticky ribbon (red daisy trim)
Everything else from my stash

As always, there is some delicious inspiration in all the amazing makes the rest of the DT have put together. Hope you can join us this week.
