Colour Create Challenge 24 - Pink, Orange, Green


Hi everyone, my card for Colour Create Challenge today where this time there's a lovely colour combo of pink, orange and green with an option of hearts picked by my DT friend Dena, a lovely choice I think so thanks Dena, I enjoyed doing this one. There's gorgeous inspiration from everyone on the team so I hope you'll pop over there, have a look and join us for the challenge, there's a lovely prize on offer this week from our sponsor Crafty Ribbons so even more reason to join in.

I've made a little flower pot pocket card, I really love these, they're so cheerful, I got the instructions to make it from Split Coast Stampers and they're very easy to make. I forgot to take a photo showing the greeting tag part of the card outside of the pocket, will try and get another photo for that. I found some pretty paper with orange, pink and green which is Sonomo by Scenic Route, I used this for the bottom of the flower pot and I also cut out some of the flowers from the paper and used these for the decoration at the top. The base card is green bazzil and I've punched a border on the pot rim with a Fiskers apron lace punch. The sentiment on the tag is by Penny Black and I added some orange BG Tulle to keep the card closed, some buttons, embroidery floss and a little silver heart charm to finish off. TFL. Chris x
