Good Morning All!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend, mine was mad. I think I`ll be glad to get to work for a rest. More about that later.
I`m posting one card today that, hopefully, fits three challenges.
They are, Picture Perfect Creations.
Which has this as our inspiration
Our Creative Corner
Who have given us this colour combo
And Curtain Call Colour Challenge #50
Who gave us this fabulous piccy and colour combo
As all three used Cajun Craze, Mustard and similar Greens I decided to combine them with this card.
One thing I have realised since starting to join in with these challenges is that alot of them use Stampin` up colours. I don`t have any Stampin` up products whatsoever so I downloaded a SU colour chart and printed it off which helps me to find the closest colours I have to the ones stipulated.
I used my favourite Flourishes Gerbera Daisy stamp mainly because it`s so versatile. I mean you get Gerberas in almost any colour under the sun can`t you?
I coloured the flowers with Promarkers Mustard and honeycomb, and the stems with Promarkers Pear Green.
I used ivory card stock for the base card and matted and layered my version of Cajun Craze, a slightly milky coffee instead of Early Espresso and Kraft, after puching along the bottom edge of each.
I`ve added an Olive ribbon and bow to finish.
Once it was all put together I realised I maybe should have done some scoring along the top to give it a bit of definition but, as they say, hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Well my weekend was quite an eventful one, for all the wrong reasons. Mum was rushed into hospital again on Saturday. She has Anyphylaxia ( probably wrong spelling) which you probably know is a severe allergic reaction usually to bee stings, nuts or latex. Having reached the ripe old age of 77 without ever having been allergic to anything it is a complete mystery as to what has caused this but she is very poorly. Apart from a severe rash she has swollen lips and throat which was a great worry. The hospital was fantastic though and the nursing staff were wonderful. At the moment she is still in hosptal and having tests and medication so it`s just a case of waiting.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
