So Romantic

What a romantic set this is. It was my turn to pick the colours at the Colour Create Challenge today and I went for a really soft combination of Baby Pink and Pastel Blue with the optional extra of something soft. You should see the pretty items made by the rest of the talented DT too.

We have also announced the new members of the Colour Create design team today. They are
We're so delighted and honoured that they accepted the offer to join us.

I'm entering my set into the following challenges:

By the Cute and Girly - Something Old (feathers) Something New (image) Something borrowed (the lace) Something Blue (ink). Okay, so the something borrowed isn't technically borrowed because it'll stay on these items now.

One Stitch At A Time - use something new (the image)

I've used one of the new Pixie Cottage stamps by ArTish on the easel card called May I Have This Dance. I made my own background by stamping that good old Love Fluff stamp and heat embossing it with clear powder. Then I smudged Spun Sugar and Stormy Sky randomly on the card. Simple to do and a pretty result. Most of the flowers are by Prima.

This gift box started out as plain chipboard. I covered it with white acrylic paint and when that was dry I went over it with Spun Sugar distress ink.
Today Michelle's Scrapbooking is sponsoring the challenge.
I hope that you'll find time to join in with us.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
