Colour Create 15

Good morning everyone. Hope you're all enjoying a lovely sunny day today. It's Sunday again so that means it's time for the next Colour Create Challenge. Our hostess this week is the wonderfully talented Heather and she has given us a gorgeous colour combo to work with. My card was made for my friend Paula's birthday yesterday and I'm pleased to say she likes it.
The inspiration was taken from this gorgeous photo to give the colour combo of Blue and Green.Our optional extra this week is paper piecing. I only paper pieced Tilda's dress and socks for this one. When I took my first photo is was a little overcast outside so this angled shot shows the card a little better. Well at least the stitching shows up better.

I kept the inside simple because there was so much going on in the front of the card and I wanted to show the beautiful papers off a little better.

DCWV Far East 8" x 8" and the mat stack papers
Brazzill basics blue card
MS Doily Lace Punch
BossKut Daisy Leaves
Nesties Large Scallop Circles
Tiny balls for the wisteria (or grapes) from hobbycraft
Ribbons, Charm and wire from my stash.

We're also pleased that our GDT for May, Juliet, has accepted a place on the permanent design team. Welcome aboard hunny.

As always the rest of the DT have worked so hard and created some gorgeous cards again this week. We hope you'll find time to join us and as usual I'll do my best to visit each and every one of you that enters.
Rightie-ho, I'm off to spend the day working at home (very hard) to make sure I can hand my report in at work tomorrow morning. Hope eveyone else enjoys their day.
