Colour Create Challenge 6 - Orange, Green and Yellow

Morning everyone, Sunday and time for another Colour Create challenge, I can't believe how quickly the weeks are going by, already we're up to challenge 6! The colours this week are orange, green and yellow with an option of 'not a card'. I found a tutorial on Inspirational for this one sheet mini album and decided to use it as a wallet as the ends are open. I think the orange dotty paper is 'my minds eye' but I've totally forgotten in between making it and writing the post! The inserts are made from core'dinations card embossed with circles and dots embossing folder as is the scalloped circle on the front and these are sanded to reveal the colour core, Ive also added some panels to the inserts and added sentiments which is where I'll write my message, I'm afraid I didn't photograph these. The image is marker coloured, matted on more core'dinations and attached with dimension tape. I've cut the sentiment from fun foam with a Go Kreate die and added some stickles over the top and glued it down with Pin flair glue gel, same with the prima flowers which have little half pearls for their centres. I also added a spine of core'dinations card where the album is folded in half to make it look a bit more like a book. Finished off with the two types of ribbon and an orange gem. Hope you decide to have a go at this challenge the inspiration from my DT friends this week is absolutely amazing and Tara has a long list of suggestions for what to make if you're stuck for an idea. Enjoy your Sunday. TFL. Chris
