A Happy Hello!

Me Again!

The girls at the Play Date Cafe have given us another challenging colour combo this week,

Now I actually like pea green and navy together although I`m not sure I would have them as my kitchen colours.And I absolutely know that I couldn`t put up with all that stainless steel, far too much polishing!!!

The challenge for me was putting these colours together onto a card. I had hoped to come up with a masterpiece but as I said before I`m limited, at the moment, to a shortage in the imagination department.

I finally came up with this card.

I don`t know about you, but quite often I know exactly which paper I`m going to use, which stamp and how to use it and after gathering all my bits together, I get creative constipation. No matter which way I move things about, nothing happens.
After sitting with papers and card in hand for about an hour, I gave in and went with the easy option ( again).
Hey ho!

The DP is  Pink Petticoat`s Dots in Pistatio matted onto silver pearlised card.
I stamped my image from Inkadinkado Birds Galore set in clear ink and embossed in silver, onto nabvy card stock.
I added a sentiment from Flourishes also embossed in silver.
I punched a border along one edge with my Fiskars border punch.
I wasn`t sure about the silver ribbon but it looked a bit naked without it.

Right I`m off to try to create that master piece that I`m sure is lurking about somewhere Lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Oh Lynne that phrase made me laugh - creative constipation - sooo funny. Not so funny when you've got it, as I have today. Your card is fab; clean, simple and elegant. I do exactly the same as you; get all my goodies out and then....NOTHING! xx

  2. Beautiful image, thanks for the morning chuckle about "creative constipation". Thanks for playing at the PDCC.

  3. wow Lynne I think you hit the nail on the head with the colours - lovely card.

  4. Well, if that is an easy option I'd go with it all the time. Gorgeous card - love the image.

  5. Beautiful embossing of the bird on the blue background. Lovely green paper. Thanks for playing along with us at the PDCC.

  6. Very beautiful card, Lynne.
    The stamp is wonderful.

  7. ACK--LOOOOOOVE it! I just got this stamp set out today! LOVE LOVE LOVE how you used silver for this stamp:) Beautifully done! Thanks so much for joining in the fun and playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe:)

  8. PRETTY bird stamp and it's LOVELY embossed!

  9. Lovely card! Gorgeous bird stamp with beautiful embossing!

  10. Not my choice of kitchen either but definitely my kind of card! I love the way you interpreted the grey as silver and I think the ribbon sets off the bird image perfectly.

  11. Classy! Oh I like how crisp this feels and that silver ribbon is beautiful. Can you tell I haven't been by in awhile. I am trying to catch up today. :0)

  12. Oh funny, I love your phrase 'creative constipation'! Your card is lovely. Glad you could join in with us at the PDCC this week!
