Home, Sweet Home

It's going to be a much shorter post today. There are no instructions or template to share today - just a card. This card has been made for my youngest daughter who has recently moved into a new flat. It's her birthday today - HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIOBHAN! I wish I'd remembered to photograph her birthday card. doh! It was a mad creation! I used a stamp of her favourite film star, Audrey Hepburn, and gave it an Andy Warhol treatment. Hope she liked it.

Today's card is my DT creation for the Colour Create Challenge where our fab Julie has given us the most gorgeous combination of colours to use

IVORY, DUCK EGG BLUE and ONE OTHER COLOUR FROM THE INSPIRATION PICTURE (hop over to the blog to see the picture).

The optional extra she chose was SHABBY CHIC. Well this is definitely shabby, and it's more distressed than chic, but I like it.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Penny's Challenges - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Anything Goes
Craft Your Days Away - Favourite Things (Glimmer Mist)
Wild Orchid Challenge - One For The Girls

The winner of the Colour Create Challenge this week will receive 2 of the brand new Pixie Cottage Stamps. Please visit the challenge blog for some awesome inspiration from the incredibly talented design team.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
