Colour Create Challenge week 15


Hello,
It is week 15 of our Colour Create challenge and Heather has chosen our colours this week and they are Blue and Green with the optional extra of paper piecing. I loved working with these colours Heather so thank you for this challenge. I have coloured my image with distress inks and I have paper pieced her dress with basic grey paper. I have distressed my background and papers with weathered wood and pine needles. I have used the martha stewart punch for the two borders. The quickutzed leaves have been glimmer misted. My fellow team members have made the most incredible cards so do check them out. 
Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday and thank you so much for looking.
Also, to everyone who is  celebrating Mothers Day today I wish you all a very Happy Mothers Day!
love kim x
