I hope you're all well :) I'm having a good day today - I got chosen as one of 12 finalists out of the whole country for the Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year Award, it turns out I can't go because I'm on holidays that week, but it's a real confidence boost to have actually been chosen for the final :) so happy Tanya today!
Anyway, on to more interesting things like cards :P I saw the new colour challenge over on the Ribbon Girl blog yesterday of Aqua, Blue and Terracota, with this photo inspiration:
and instantly dismissed it, because I'm terrible when it comes to orange lol :P but then I decided to challenge myself and go for it, and this is what I came up with :) I'm happy enough with it, considering I can't do orange, it turned out ok enough :)
I also found out what happens when you put gems through the Grand Calibur, they get squashed :P
The image and sentiment are from Lili of the Valley, the flowers and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pearls and ribbon are from Ribbon Girl, the swirl is Marianne Design, the leaves are a MS punch, I made the pins myself and the rest is from stash.
A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers, complete with mushed up gems lol and Stickles on her wings, buttons and wand :)
A closeup of the ribbon and homemade pins.
A closeup of my lovely Wild Orchid Craft flowers :)
Sentiment, I think this is going to be a thank you card, but I wanted to leave the sentiment neutral just in case.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Bingo (Blue/Flowers/Pearls)
Thanks for looking :)
