3 November - Challenge 83 - Julie, Turquoise, Deep Pink, Ivory

 Our sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe's Crafts:

The winner of this fortnight's challenge will win a gift voucher to spend in the store.
Here is my card:

I apologise for the quality of this picture - the card doesn't look this bright IRL! To create it, I used Rustic Cream for my base and a layer of Tempting Turquoise card as a mat. On my top layer of cream card, I lightly ruled up a grid with a pencil and stamped one of the flowers from Beautiful Blooms II repeatedly in Melon Mambo ink, then rubbed out the pencil lines. I added a strip of glitter along the top of my flower background and then some vanilla ribbon above this. I stamped my three large flowers from the Beautiful Blooms II set in Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise ink and then cut them out. I adhered these on top of my ribbon with a little Glossy Accents to make sure they didn't move and added a pink button again with some Glossy Accents. Finally I stamped my sentiment from Inside & Outside: Birthday using Tempting Turquoise ink.

I finished off the front with some random turquoise rhinestones.

The ladies on the team have created some beautiful cards this week so hop on over to the Colour Create blog to have a look!
