.... I think I've mentioned that there's something special about June - another of the Design Team is celebrating this week - our very own Mona Pendleton. Have a very Happy Birthday!!
And now to our CR84FN colour challenge - bright, zingy, fresh colours - aqua, green and yellow - just gorgeous!! Love them.
The inspiration pictures are courtesy of Leslie at A Creative Mint - great photos!! Scott has come up trumps again with the quote - I so enjoy the creative process when making cards.
I've made a birthday card with these colours - and no, it's not Mona's card - you'll get to see that on the day!! I wanted to make a card with a yellow "beetle" - you know, the car!! I think it's a cute car - and I wanted to make the card for a girl! I stamped the background using aqua and green, then I stamped the cute "beetle" onto white card and cut it out with my oval nesties. I masked off the car and sponged on the sky and ground. I used Promarkers to colour the car. I cut out a beaded oval mat in bright aqua and threaded a yellow ribbon through the holes. I made a matching, but smaller, beaded oval for the birthday sentiment. To complete the card I added some lovely textured flowers, with gems, in the challenge colours.
