Colour Create and Wags N' Whiskers Challenges

Good morning everyone...

It has been such a crazy busy week for me. With time so limited I have combined my Colour Create Challenge with my Wags N' Whiskers Challenge.

The Colour Create Challenge is brought to us by "Heather" and she has chosen "Mint, Chocolate and Cream" with the optional extra of "Texture".

The Wags N' Whiskers Challenge is hosted by "Michele" and she has asked us to "Make Our Own Flowers".

It wasn't until I took the picture that I realized my green is not very minty.....but it looked good at the!!!

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I distressed the edges with Ranger distress vintage photo ink. I punched holes in the card and threaded the ribbon. The flowers were punched with my EK Success retro flower punches. The fern is made with my MS punch. The DP is from Basic Grey.

Be sure to stop by the Colour Create and Wags N' Whiskers blogs as my teamies have created some fabulous cards to inspire you.

Have a fabulous day and Thanks so much for stopping by...
