Pink, Blue and Cream

A big hello to you all and a massive thank you for stopping by my little blog.   Today I have a card that I made following the picture inspiration on The Ribbon Reel Challenge. Here is my card:

No image just sentiment only which is either Penny Black or Hero Arts - I can't find the package the sentiments came in!  The paper is from Pink Petticoat called Nordic Christmas trees and I printed it out on cream cardstock.  I have used a Spellbinder die and sponged it with Victorian Velvet DI whilst still in the die.  I also coloured the seam binding with the same DI.  The pretty spacer and flat back pearl which I coloured with Copics to match are from my stash.   The Christmas tree is a Marianne die and I used felt for it and the pretty resin flower on top is from My Crafty Heart.

Here is the inspiration photo:

I have used the colours pink, blue and cream.  I also used the trees as inspiration for my felt one, adding some pearls to the corners as these were on the trees in the picture. For my bling I added the pretty spacer with another pearl!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Ribbon Reel - Photo Inspiratiion
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Non-Traditional Christmas Colours

Well that's all from me for today. Not much on today just going to the gym at some point so plenty of crafting time but I really need to get my parcels sent off to the U.S.A. so I might be doing some packing!  See you all tomorrow, take care xx
