Colour Create - Georgia's choice

I think you were well and truly tested by last week's colours and theme at Colour Create
- sorry, but they can't always be easy, hee hee! True to form though you did the business once again and there were oodles of amazing entries for us to enjoy. We have had one or two problems leaving comments over the past couple of days, so if your entry hasn't been acknowledged we do apologise.

Before I tell you about this week's colours and theme, I have two things to announce. Firstly, we need a winner for the candy prize offered to anyone entering last week's challenge (only those who didn't combine challenges were entered into the draw) - and the lucky winner is...................


My second piece of news is that we're welcoming another new designer to our team this week. Dena has joined us on a permanent basis and we have gained another wonderful cardmaker who produces some stunning creations and has supported our challenge almost every week - welcome aboard Dena!

Tara's lovely talented daughter Georgia has been desperate to come up with the colours and theme for one of our challenges, so this week's choice is all down to her........ ( Fab choice Georgia - really enjoyed this one)

For the extra option we would like you to use die cuts on your card or project (and these can be cut with a machine or precut in a sheet), but please remember that this is not compulsory.


When the "Boss" said she wanted die cuts this week - I thought right let's give her die cuts.
Apart from the tiny rose and the ribbon, everything on this card is die cut. Now my DT teamies are all taking the 'mick' and telling me I could have entered the spirit of the option at bit more (lol). I do make small roses with a balloon punch, but they are not this small, but I did debate taking of this one a giving a tinier one a whirl - as for the ribbon I could have made my own with the one the Provocraft border dies. However, as usual time ran out so it will have to stay as it is.
I used the Nesties curved rectangle for the card and the various layers using various papers from my bit box and built up with foam pads. My new Anya is coloured with Copics, the flowers cut from the Provocraft flower dies and the swirls from the BossKut flower flourish die. Ribbon and small rose from stash.

BC & papers - Various from bit box : Image Greeting Farm's Anya : Medium - Copics : Dies - Provocraft flowers, Nesties Curved rectangles & BossKut Leaf flourish : Rose & ribbon from stash
