A Colour Challenge

Hi everyone. Once again we are at Friday and that means it is Frosted Designs day. I've behaved myself this week, I think. Time has been so short that I've not really been able to play. Anyway, the challenge this week is a colour challenge and the combo to use is:

Lime, Aqua and Brown.

I love these colours together and for a change I've used a dark brown background to show off the Lime and Aqua.

I'm entering this into the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp - buttons, bows and bling
Magical Crafts Challenge - something for the girls
Sweet Pea Stampers - Under the sea
Aifactory - Buttons (the gold pearl buttons at the corners)

The photos really don't pick up the richness of the dark brown lace. I love the shape of the bling swirls because they make me think of waves.

I hope this close-up shows the glittery sparkle I added to the image. This one has been coloured with Promarkers.

Please take a look at the other creations that the Frosted Designs girls have made; they are fab.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
