Do Not Adjust Your Sets!

Hello All!
I hope you`re all enjoying the bank holiday Sunday ( UK)

Guess who has to work tomorrow? Serves me right for working in retail lol.

My first post today is one I am really not sure about. In fact I would go so far as to say it`s really quite ugly.
I sometimes think that the girls who think up the colour challenges have quite a cruel streak in them. Just look at what the girls from The Play Date Cafe, 
have come up with. 

Hot Pink, Navy and Mustard.
They`ve even called it the ` Colour Horribilis` Challenge, and they were not wrong there,lol.
Still, a challenge is a challenge and I`ve had a go, not very well but I`ve had a go. This is what I finished up with.
Yes folks, I actually made this and not only that, I have the cheek to post it on my blog.

I used Navy card as my base.
I cut a piece of dark yellow card ( no mustard I`m afraid) and stamped an Elusive Images Damask in navy ink all over.
I added some hot pink ribbon and a bow.
The thank you sentiment is by Papertrey and is my sarcastic way of thanking the girls for such an awful colour combo this week.
Please, please, please can we have some nice pretty colours next time, pretty please!!!

End of rant and it`s all said very tongue in cheek, honestly.

Thanks for looking...Lynne xxx
