Confession time!

Okay, it's confession time......I've been a total idiot. I was so, so pleased with myself, thinking that I'd used the sketch over at Less is More in my Colour Create DT card. There I am, patting myself on the back 'cos I do love entering Chrissie & Mandi's challenge and it has been oh so long since I last made the effort.

Oh yeah! Real clever of me.......I didn't use the sketch properly! The sentiment is in the wrong place and I've committed the crime of turning the sketch by 90% too. Grrrr! Must read instructions properly in the future ;o) Ah well, the best laid plans and all that!

So, here's my Colour Create card. Our wonderful monochrome colours of White or Cream and Light Brown and Dark Brown have been picked by the fabulous Shanna this time. She's also give us the optional extra of hearts.

Items used:
Distress Inks: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs
Stamps: all of these are over 6 months old. The wooden one is positively ancient!! Basic Grey Love Blush (swirly hearts). Waltzing Mouse Text-it (Heat embossed on the vellum). Sentiment - and unmarked wood one (sorry)
Punches & Dies: Martha Stewart Lace Heart punch. Sizzix Sizzlets 'Flower Layers Set'
Diamonte floral centre is something I picked up at a craft show from the Hobby House

I'd like to enter this into:
Crafty Sentiments - Punches and/or dies
Cooking it up with Katie - Punch, Emboss, Heart
Oldie but a goodie - Hearts
The House that Stamps Built - Embossing
Whimsical Designs - Bringing out the old

I hope that you'll join in with use at Colour Create this time.The girls have made some super projects - take a look here.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

It's a gorgeous card Sharon... even if you did swish the panel round.
