Colour Create

What a challenge we have for you this week at Colour Create!  The colors have been chosen by Victoria who is also our sponsor this week.

Picture of the prize!
Hot Pink, Warm Orange and Saffron
Extra Option:  Butterflies

Now if you are like me, I had to look up the word "saffron",  and it is actually just a warm yellow. So there you have it, your lesson on color for the day. ha ha!

This was the perfect opportunity for me to use the CC Designs kit I got in the Spring.  The papers are a mixture of Bo Bunny, MME, and K&Co.  The large pink paper flower is Prima, then I added a crochet flower from my friend Janiel and then put in the center a Cherry Blossom that I painted with Scattered Straw from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The leaves are from my cricut on the Storybook cartridge. I have sewn all around the different pieces and added sheer ribbon and pearls.  I would like to enter this into Create4fun where the challenge is flowers and also Creative Inspirations where you have to use an animal (my butterflies). 

I think I quite like these colors, since they are so happy!  I hope you will give it a try.

Be sure to check out all of my team members cards, we have a wonderful variety of talent!

Thank you for visiting! I appreciate all of your support!

Hugs, Dena
