Two favourite combinations

Warning: if you haven't eaten yet this blog post could be hazardous to your health. You'll be craving sweet, chocolaty, sugary things when you see the wonderful picture that Di has given us for inspiration at the Colour Create Challenge. Isn't it scrummy?The colours she's chosen for the challenge are HOT PINK, DUSKY PINK and ICE CHOCOLATE. What a winning combination that is!

The optional extra is Pearls and Swirls. That's another of my favourites.

All the girls on the design team have made the most amazing creations - but I think Deanne went into overdrive this week - there was just no stopping her!!! ;o) (Oh to have that much mojo in you). Please do take a look at their sensational work.

Here is the card that I made (I may have gone a bit overboard with the pearls - but who cares? I like pearls)

Items used:
Uh oh! I fought it off - honest I did! Bearly Mine papers.
Brazill Basics - London Fog and In The Pink.
Stamps - TGF Miss Anya, Butterfly stamp from Daisy & Dandelion set, Studio G So Sweet, Creative Expressions Corner swirl stamp
Brushed Corduroy Distress ink, Promarkers
Hobbycraft tiny pink pearls and fuschia roses
Everything else from my stash.

We have a $25 credit voucher for the winner this week kindly donated by Heidi from
Simon Says Stamp!

Hope to see you all at the challenge!

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

Hi Sharon, I came along the other day to comment but couldn't - IT wouldn't let me - forgot to come back until I started having problems again today and remembered (can't help being dizzy). I'm still getting silly messages so don't know if you're getting these either.
Right onto the card - don't be STUPID - how can you have too many pearls - impossible. Love that cute Miss Anya and your swirly stamp is gorgeous. Love your flower as well, especially the woven bit - fabulous.
hugs Heather xx
