Pink Green and Yellow

I went to buy a CD from a Hi-Fi store yesterday and came across a really great dollar store that I didn't know about!  I bought a few ribbon packs and a couple of packs of glitter embellishments (hearts and stars).  I didn't have enough money with me to get anything else so when I get a chance I am going to go back there and have a good look around!



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

Creative Craft Cottage - Ribbons and/or Pearls
http://creativecraftcottage.blogspot.co.nz/2017/01/challenge-79-ribbons-andor-pearls.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I was thrilled when I realised that the main three colours in this paper matched the colour palette at The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge.  The image is from Lemon Shortbread and is coloured with copic markers.  I matted with some bright pink cardstock.  I also die-cut a butterfly from the same cardstock.  The ribbon is from a pack of ribbons that I bought yesterday. 

Heart Warming Moments

It is the midway point of the first challenge of 2017 at 12 Months of Christmas and the theme is Out with the Old, In with the New. So, include in your creation somehting old and something new. My old is the digital paper which I have had for a couple of years and the die I used to cut the image.  My new is the santa head embellishment and the sentiment both of which I purchased recently. Our sponsor for this challenge is Ike's Art

I have used an image from Ike's Art along with a paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.



I also used the embellishments I purchased recently as well as a die from Spellbinders to die-cut the image.

I have woken up today with really bad hayfever.  This year it has been way worse than previous years for some reason.  I don't feel like doing much today - but had this card almost completed so managed to finish it off and upload it.

Golds and Browns

I decided to use up some of my offcut pieces for this card.  I discovered that I had alot in a gold or brown colour scheme so took that as my starting point for this card.
