Colour Create Challenge!

This is the card I've made for this weeks Colour Create Challenge where the challenge is to use the colours blue and green with the added option of using some paper piecing on your project.

This Maggie with flowers image (by sugar nellie at funky kits) was my first ever stamp purchase and is still one of my favourites! Coloured with my distress inks and I paper pieced her dress with this gorgeous spotty paper from the DCWV christmas paper stack. CS is coredinations. Scalloped edge was created with my SU border punch and holes added with my cropodile. The sentiment is a papermania freebie with this edition of creativity magazine. Flower is from prima with a home made one to match the spotty paper, pearl brad to finish!

Now this card is more like it, and I am much happier with it than my last one! Back in my comfort zone! :-)

Well I hope you have all had a great weekend. I'd better get off and start preparing for work in the morning! Got an early 7.15 start! I'm still going to try and have a little hop around though before bed and see what you've all been up to!

Hugs, Vicky x

I love your Maggie too and I know what you mean about clean, simple lines. Sometimes less is more.

I really must have another go at paper piecing....

What a totally adorable card!
I love your cute image and such pretty paper!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment! I use blending foam to distress with and start on my craft sheet and move over onto the card or paper to add the colour!

Great card, Vicky. I love this Maggie stamp too, it's really nice to see her again.I don't think I have used mine often enough (once I think), perhaps I'll dig her out to play again! Love the paper piecing too.x
