COLOR CREATE CHALLENGE......

Hello everyone;
I am so excited to share with you some great news. I have been asked to be on the design team for the Color Create Challenge. Well I didn't have to think about that too long.....of course I said YES!! The talent over there are just amazing...a super group of artists and absolutely gorgeous creations to inspire you. Don't just take my word for it....pop on over and check it out for yourself. Everyone is welcome to play along, use any image you like just follow the color scheme for the challenge....easy!! The challenges will run every 2 weeks so you have lots of time to get your creations together....I hope to see you there.

The challenge this week is "Blue and White"...with a touch of vintage. Here is the fab color scheme to inspire you. This challenge is also sponsored by "Simon Says Stamp" and it is for a $25.00 credit voucher.


The image I have chosen for my card is by Sunshine Designs.




I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used white Liquid Pearls on the tips of the petals and the center pearls. The center of the flower has glossy accents on it. The frame was cut with my nesties and the borders are done with my MS doily lace punch. I pierced the edges of the scallops and added some pearls. I wish you could see the design in the blue dp...it has black swirls on it and is really pretty. My camera just wouldn't pick it up at all. That's too bad as that was my touch of vintage...lol!!

A very heartfelt Thank You to Sharon and the DT for inviting me to be a part of their fabulous team.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I appreciate all the wonderful comments you leave.
Have a great day....

Hi Karen--thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I don't know what's wrong with my blog. I am hoping to get some help with it soon. That part is very frustrating!

Absolutely beautiful card Karen! I think you got the colours and the vintage theme perfectly and I love the swirl paper you used, I can just see the black swirls if I go in on the close up. The image stamp is so pretty and your colouring and design delightful. So glad that you said yes and joined the team, looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations. Chris :)

Hi Karen, welcome to our 'gang' - sorry it's taken me so long to welcome you - I'm in the middle of moving to Germany and am running round in circles not knowing what I'm doing at the moment (mind you I usually don't know what I'm doing so nothing new there lol).
Fabulous card, love the drama of the colours and that gogeous image and you can see the swirls if you zoom in. Look forward to getting to know you better.
hugs Heather xx
