A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 79 - A Colour Challenge

Our challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar was picked by our own Camilla and it is a colour combo with a twist,you need to use brown as your nain colour and then you can add either pink or blue.

Our sponsor this week is Denise from Whimsy stamps and you can read all about the generous prize that she has given us this week and also about a 10% off coupon over on the blog. While you are there you will just love the cards that the rest of the DT have come up with this week.

I haven't inked up these Gorjuss girls stamps for ages, but I think that this little beauty goes so well with these gorgeous papers from Webster's Pages. I bought a 6x6 pad of these when I was at the Hobbycrafts Show in Glasgow a few weeks ago and have been gazing at them ever since - they are just too beautiful to cut into - I only wish that I had bought more of them. The flowers are by Bo-Bunny and I have given them a light spray of glimmer mist. The swirls were cut using a Quickutz die.

I do hope that you enjoy these colours as much as I have done - It was a real challenge for me as these are not the colours that I would normally work with - but I certainly will be using them again as I am really pleased with the finished card.

I am also entering this card at Everybody Art Challenge where the challenge is Christmas Cards and also at Papertake Weekly where they are looking for Christmas Crackers.

Update on this card as I have had a few questions about the tree - this tree is on one of these Webster's Pages sheets of DP and I have just cut it out and glued the gorjuss girl onto it.
