Colour Challenge

Good morning everyone!  Well we have a new challenge over at Card Makin Mamas which is:


Yes we want to see your Cards (this is a card only challenge) in the above colour combo, here is mine:

I have used the funny Stella Tidbits Heaven by our amazing sponsors this week Bugaboo.  Stella has been coloured with Copics and I have used Stickles around the cloud to glitz her up a bit.  I have used my Spellbinders Nesties to cut and mat the image and also the papers behind.  The papers are Nitwits Tour of London Collection.  The sentiment comes with the image.  The corner dies are by Whimsy, flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and gems and ribbon from my stash.

We are sponsored for this challenge by the amazing Bugaboo Stamps:


If you haven't seen their images you are really missing out!  They are so funny and perfect for any occasion.  They do have more serious images also.  The prize for the challenge is:


Wow that is an amazing seven images!  Please pop over to Card Makin' Mamas Challenge and check out what the rest of the Design Team have made with the different Bugaboo Stamps.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Poodles Parlour - Red White and Blue
Art Impressions - Make Us Laugh
Inky Impressions - Red White and Blue

Hi again Susan. Have just seen your latest comment on my blog, and yes, I live not a million miles away from you. I live in Burnley.
It was brilliant seeing the torch, there were lots of people watching and it certainly makes you feel patriotic, and I cant wait for The Olympics to start.
I couldn't find your email, so had to post here.
Lots of love, Sandra xxx
