Sweet Stamping ~ Colour Combo

Morning everyone, hope your all well. Its a very wet Sunday morning here...and I don't believe I'll be going out much hopefully a little more time to craft after I've done the ironing :( not my favourite chore...although Im pretty lucky my OH is a dab hand at it and doesn't mind doing maybe I can put my feet up today, lol

Well I made a card last night for the new challenge blog
and its run by 2 of my blogging buddies: Emma & Jo
2 fabulously talented ladies who have become great friends over the past I wanted to give them both some support with their new challenge blog and join in the fun. Sadly I missed their 1st challenge last week as nothing was coming together, you know the way it's supposed gave up in the end ~ sorry girls.

This week they hace a gorgeous colour combo challenge and here's the guideline
You don't have to use Stamping Up! card stock/colours, as long as they are a close match!
Please use a minimum of 3 colours from the colour combo

Well I decided to use all 4 colours....although there's not much Olive green on my can see a little on the backing paper and on Henry Mouse....sorry about the bad picture, its been difficult to get a good one with it being so gloomy today.
Cardstocks: Basic Grey ~ Wassail
Image: WOJ ~ Henry Mouse with Lantern
Mediums: Pro Markers, Stickles ~ Crystal
Sentiment: SU ~ Season Of Joy
Supplies: Lace, flowers, brad, spacer pearls ~ Stash

If you pop over to their blog the Design Team have created some wonderful inspiration for everyone, and its so great to see such a range of styles by the girls.
I had lots of fun with this challenge girls, thank you very much.

Have a great day everyone
