Mint Chocolate dreaming

Good morning everyone. I do hope that you're all having a great week. Today I have my Colour Create DT card for you....but avert your eyes if you're on a diet. This inspiration picture won't be good for you! Our fabulous Heather picked the colours today of MINT, CHOCOLATE and CREAM with an optional extra of TEXTURE. Wow! what a fantastic combination. Thanks Heather.

We are saying a sad farewell to Heather this week. She has been a rock on the Colour Create DT and will be missed terribly by everyone. Not only are her cards always beautiful and full of inspiration, but she has been totally committed to the challenge, supported everyone and been a good friend too. It's always sad to see someone leave who was there at the start of the challenge. I wish you all the best for the future Heather.

Well, I'd best get to my card for the challenge, which is also going to be entered into:

The Sweet Shop - the fab sketch that I followed (with a bit of artistic license)
Lili of the Valley - an Easel Card
The Pixie Cottage - The Colour Green
Allsorts Challenge - Just for Men
Die Cut Dreams - No Flowers Allowed
Crafty Catz - Shades of Green

I had intended keeping this card for my grandson Oscar's first birthday...but his mum needed a card this week, so off this one went. Ah well, I can never keep hold of a male card for too long.

Items used:
Image: Lili of the Valley
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps
Papers: Bearly Mine
Cuttlebug Folders: Script and Swiss Dots
Circle and Scallop Nesties.
Screw Head Brads, String, Button and Tim Holtz ideology corner from my stash
Distress inks - quite a few, and I can't remember them all now, sorry.

We're welcoming 2 guest designers to the challenge this week: Victoria and Eileen. Please take a look at the gorgeous work they created for us, and at all the inspiration from the rest of the talented DT.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
