Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Talk about an Arty shot! Anyone would think I'd been having photography lessons. I can't believe how dramatic I made my card look.

Today is Colour Create Challenge Day and we have some new design team members to introduce to everyone. So firstly here's a big warm welcome to:

It's great to have you on the team. I'd also like to say a huge 'Thank You' to everyone else that entered the DT call; you made the choice hard for us.

Our challenge today has been picked by Julie and she has given us an awesome combination.

Turquoise, Deep Pink and Ivory

The optional extra is Glitter.

I was so inspired by the colours that I made a card I'm really pleased with!!!! I was going to leave the background just brayered but I'm so glad I took the chance and embossed it and glittered up the edge. It made all the difference.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges.
