Another NEW Leanne Ellis and Colour Create!

Well, today for Colour Create the uber talented MINA picked the colors:


Oh these colors are sooooo pretty together aren't they?  Our extra option is gingham. Now, you don't have to use the extra option, but if you would like to, great!  Our wonderful sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrapbooking and More! She owns the Pixie Cottage and  has some really cute designs.

The image I used is one of the new Leanne Ellis, Annie, designs from Sugar Nellie.  I know there are a lot of Annie fans out there and isn't she cute?  Super fast to color!  They will be in stock very soon!

My papers are just a complete mixture, sorry I don't have the names.  I know the grey and white gingham is from CTMH. By the way, I had someone ask me what that was and I just assumed everyone knew.  It is very similar to Stampin Up! but with more scrapbooking.  It stands for Close To My Heart.  I love their products!

I colored with distress inks, used stickles on my Nellie Snellen punch flower and branch punch and stitched all around.  I made the smaller flowers with the retro punch and scrunched them up. The border punch is called Sunburst by Fiskars.  The sentiment is by Hero Arts and I got it from Simon Says Stamp.  And for the final touch, some gorgeous purple pearls from my friend Jo! She was sweet enough to get me these at the NEC.  Thanks Jo!!!

I hope you like my card! Please be sure to go have a look at the rest of the DT's work!  I will be back tomorrow with a card for Just Magnolia.

Big Hugs, Dena

  18. Hi Dena,

    This is a really beautiful colour combination. I love the layout for a larger image, as they are sometimes more difficult to work with.
