Colour Create Challenge - Navy, Turquoise and Lime

Ooooh, I just love this colour combination so my first project today is the Colour Create Challenge....the extra twist this week is to use NO patterned paper! A challenge indeed! Thinking cap on and a look through my stamps and this one jumped out at me. I used Tombow pens to colour the flowers on the stamp, Distress Inks to colour Tilda and Prima flowers. I may have forgotten to mention that I took delivery of a Silhouette on Friday and the first results are on this card too! I'm going to have lots of fun playing with my new toy.

Happy Mothers' Day to all you mums out there - hope you have a perfect day!

I had the most gorgeous bouquet of flowers delivered yesterday from my sons, a home made keyring from James and two beautiful cards (not handmade!), and a lovely cuppa in bed this morning.

Thanks for visiting xxx

Gorgeous card, I love the colour combo, I have my 2yr old on my knee looking with me, she says " I like them flowers mummy". She obviously has very good taste.
