2 challenges today.

Happy Sunday All !

Well I think I`ve finally calmed down after yesterdays wonderful event, (no I don`t mean the football).

I have one card today that I`m entering into two challenges.  Our Creative Corner.
Which is to to decorate our corners, and  Color Throwdown #96. 
which has this gorgeous colour combo.

This is my submission ;

I`ve chosen to go quite clean and simple with this one as I felt the colour combo would be a bit gaudy ( even for me lol) to do a big blousy, frilly card.
I started with white hammered card.
I cut a peice of the same card just slightly smaller than the main one but turned it over so it`s plain card and scored two lines along the right side.
The leaf stamp is by Papertrey and is stamped in versacolor  fresh green and heat embossed with clear ep to give it some gloss.
The pale orange rose is from a local haberdashery store.
I`ve added some egg yolk yellow ribbon and some pale blue ribbon and a bow over the top.
Some pale blue ribbon across one corner and some flatbacked pearls in the other.
The sentiment is also from Papertrey. I`ve raised the front panel with foam pads to give the whole thing some depth.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
