Well, I love my card today. The wonderfully talented Karen has given this fab cat picture for inspiration and a fantastic colour combination to work with over at the Colour Create Challenge today. I wasn't sure how I'd get on with it at first after the soft pastels we've had for the last two challenges...but once I got started I really enjoyed using the colours.
So the combination today is: Burnt Orange, Black and Cream with an optional extra of Checks. I do hope some of you will try this -it is a brilliant combination. Just wait till you see the fantastic projects the rest of the talented DT have created with it; they are sure to inspire you.
