Colour Create Challenge #45

Good morning everyone.....
It's time for the Colour Create Challenge.

This weeks challenge is brought to us by the very lovely Sharon and she has chosen...."Baby Pink and Pastel Blue" with the optional extra of " something soft".

Here is a little inspiration to
get you motivated!!

This weeks sponsor is
"Michelle's Scrapbooking"

The beautiful image I am using today is from "Lily of the Valley"...."Fairie Thistledown".
I have had this stamp for ages and never used it but I thought it would be perfect for this delicate colour scheme.

I embossed the images with black and painted them with Distress ink. I cut out the extra flowers and layered them with foam tape. I also added some waterfall stickles and flat backed pearls. The corners were punched with my MS loop punch. The DP is from Magenta. My something soft is the pretty organza ribbon.

Be sure to stop by the Colour Create Blog as the design team has some fabulous creations to share with you too.

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