Willow, Cocoa and a Flower Stump

Well, I was a bit of a dipstick two weeks ago, wasn't I? I've only just realised that I totally forgot to post my DT card for the Colour Create Challenge (blush). Luckily I only have myself to answer to on that - so I've given myself a serious talking to, and it won't happen again (I hope!). Phew! so glad there wasn't a 'boss' to answer to.

Anyway, two weeks on and here we are with a new Colour Create Challenge. Our wonderful hostess this time is Liz and she's given us a really dreamy set of colours to work with:


with the optional extra of flowers and/or gems (of course I went for all options.....what else would you expect from me? lol)

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Ann's Creative Nook - Got Hearts? (the brads
Catch The Bug - Embossing
Let's Ink It Up - Anything Goes
Ooh La La Challenge - Bling It On
Secret Crafter - Tons of Texture
Speedy The Cat's - Embossing
The Lollipop Ladies - Add some Glitter or Bling
Sketch Saturday - The sketch
Totally Papercraft - Say Thank you (this is a thank you card
Totally Stampalicious - Mix It Up (Stamps from 2 stamp sets - I have Pixie Cottage and Whiff Of Joy)

I am enjoying mixing up my stamps at the moment, so I found another stamp that I could perch someone on (Pixie Cottage Stump and Bench) and I teamed this one up with an old favourite of mine: Whiff of Joy, Willow with Hot Chocolate. I think she perches really well on the little bench.
Well, I do hope you take a look at the awesome DT eye candy that is on the challenge blog; it's well worth a visit.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
