Colour Create #4 - blue & brown, lace & pearls

The colours we have for you this week at Colour Create are Blue and Brown. For this week's extra option we would like you to use lace and pearls, but please remember that this is not compulsory.

We would like to welcome Kim onto the Design Team as a permanent member and look forward to seeing many more of her wonderful creations. She was asked to join us from the very start, but had to delay this for a few weeks due to other commitments.

It also gives us great pleasure to introduce this week's guest designer Lynsey, it is a real honour to have her joining us for this week's challenge.

Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!



Oooooh! some of my favourites meant I really enjoyed this weeks challenge. I used Basic Grey Granola papers and brown bazzill bc. I made the flowers from the tutorial at Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard. Rather than have an image I decided to use a sentiment as the focal point of the card. I bought the gorgeous lace in Manchester last weekend and love it that much I now have about 3" left - why didn't I buy more - grrrrrrrrr.........
Materials
BC - brown bazzill : BP - Basic Grey Granola : Cuttlebug - Nestie label dies : Leone Em branch & stamen punches : Pears - SU : Rest from stash
