Colour Create Challenge.................

First of all can I say a very heartfelt thank you to everyone for sending me such lovely comments wishing me well in my Magnolia DT position. I am so overwhelmed by your kindness and am so glad to have met you all. You are just the sweetest people on the planet and and I love visiting you on your wonderful blogs. Thank you!

Today is a new challenge at Colour Create and it is my turn this week to choose the colours for you all to play with. I really hope you like them. The CC team have made the most beautiful creations I am just bowled over by them so thank you girls you just rock! The colours are Sky Blue, Tan and Ecru. With the optional extra of Gloss, Glitter, Glaze.

For my card I have coloured my image with distress inks. The background I have distressed with weathered wood and antique linen. I have distressed my papers with antique linen. For the glimmer I have glimmer misted my flowers with old lace. To add some glitter I have added stickles to the flowers, grass and sentiment. I also added some liquid pearl to the swirl.

I have been given this award by the amazingly talented Ilonka. Thank you so much Ilonka this means so much to me and I am so happy that you thought of me.

Thank you so much for looking and I wish you a wonderful Sunday! I have Claire and Paul coming over for Sunday lunch today. With of course the delicious Luca and Isabella!
