Crafty Angels - What's your Colour?

Before I get to my card I would just like to say that I am thrilled to have gotten Top 5 on Magnolia Down Under Challenges again. Thanks so much to the girls for picking my card.. it's a real confidence boost :) 

This week on Crafty Angels the theme (as set by me) is What's your Colour. We would like to see you create something using either the colours you feel most represent your personalitly or your favourite colour. One of my favourite colours is GREEN.

I got this super cute Bildmalarna stamp from Laura for my birthday so I just had to use it on my DT card :D 

I came across a new challenge blog called Paper Jewels, home of these wonderful Bildmalarna stamps, and I am entering this card into their first challenge.

I coloured my image using distress inks and added a little Twinkling H2O for some sparkle. My border was punched out using MS Heartlace punch and then inked with Vintage Photo. The cherry blossoms were plain white but I inked the edges with Broken China to match them to my card. I finished off by adding some stickles around my image, I just love how it takes up the colour of the ink under it.

Paper: Magenta - Robins Nest
Image: Bildmalarna - Mimosa's Birdhouse 
Tools - Marth Stewart Heartlace punch, sponge dauber
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts - Cherry Blossoms & closed roses
Distress inks, stickles, lace

Don't forget to pop over to the other DT ladies' blogs to see their colour!! Links on the side -->

Have a great Tuesday and happy crafting :)
