Colour Create 35 – Lemon and Lime

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Lemon and lime
Hi everyone, a new Colour Create challenge starts today with a lovely colour combo of lemon and lime with an option of spring or summer flowers chosen by our lovely Sharon so thanks Sharon, love these zingy colours! There’s some amazing cards from my DT friends and a great prize from Michelle’s Scrapbooking so I hope you can join us for this one.
I’ve stamped a sweet little girl from The Greeting Farm 'hope and grace' set that I haven’t managed to use before, coloured her with copics, cut out and added lots of sparkle with stickles and a glitter pen. The die cut nestie shape is embossed with a CB happy birthday folder, sanded, edged with lime ink and stickles and punched with a slot punch to add the dotty ribbon. Background paper is BasicGrey Lime Rickey, distressed and edged with stickles and the flowers are a stamp from the same Hope and Grace set, I stamped, coloured and cut out five of them, added buttons tied with lime green cord and stickles.
Have a great time tonight if you’re celebrating new years eve! TFL.

Hi Sweetie..... Wow!! Your Zingy card really woke me up... in fact my mouth is watering (how weird) must be the 'Opal Fruits' effect. I love the lime and lemon ones.
All the sparkle is so pretty.
Wishing you all the very best and much success for 2010!
Love Sandra xx

Superb card Chris, isn't it nice to see some summery colours after all the xmas tones. Love all the detail- buttons, the embossed nestie label and the distressed edges. The colouring as ever is fab. I'm working on my entry now.
Wishing you a very happy 2010.
