Good Morning everyone

It's time for the Colour Create Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to us by the lovely Chris and she has chosen Kraft, Blue and White with the optional extra of Texture.

Here is a little inspiration
to get you started.

Our sponsor this week is
" The Rubber Room"
online store and there is a
$20.00 gift certificate up for
grabs for one lucky winner.

I picked up this adorable mini suitcase at The Rubber Room and thought it was just perfect for a set of note cards.

The sweet little butterfly and little flowers I used are from High Hopes and the sentiments are from Sunshine Designs.

I embossed the butterflies with black and painted them with Tombows. I also embossed the sentiments. I used a CB folder on each card and used my nesties to cut the frames. The craft piece at the bottom of the sentiment was cut with my scallop scissors. I used some wire for the antenna.

I hope you will have time to play along with us for this challenge and be sure to stop by the Colour Create Blog as the Design Team have some gorgeous creations to share with you.

Have a wonderful day...Thanks so much for stopping by
