Basic Grey Challenges & Colour Me Creative

Good afternoon and happy Saturday!!

I have 2 cards to share today. The first one is my very first DT sample for Colo{u}r me Creative {I have to spell colour with the U -  it's too strange otherwise, lol. }

 The theme for this challenge is Brunette.

There is a fabulous prize for the randomly chosen winner:

-3 Copic Markers -or- Refills of your choice
-$20 Gift Certificate to 7 Kids College Fund

I've chosen to use a Magnolia Tilda and  went with E71, 74 & 77 for my brunette colours. My papers are Basic Grey Offbeat, matted with a dark brown and a cream cardstock. I've machine stitched all of my papers.

The flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the organza ribbon is from my stash. 

Fairy Tale - 3 papers, 3 pearls & ribbon
Oldie But Goodie Challenge - Lots of Layers
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes


Next is the card I made for Basic Grey Challenges and this fortnight we'd like to see HOT PINK, LIME GREEN & BROWN/KRAFT.  I seriously had an 'eeeeeeeek' moment when I read what the challenge was but I love how the colours go together. 

The image I chose for this one is a hAnglar & stAnglar and I've coloured it to match the theme of the challenge. The papers are Basic Grey Sweet Threads matted on pink and lime green cardstock, all machine stitched. The acetate doily behind my image was sent to me by my friend Dee2. The sentiment stamped onto kraft card is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Fabulous Friday - Stitching.
Divas by Design - Florals
A Spoonful Of Sugar - Summer - Colours, images etc
Anita Be Stampin' - Go Crazy with Layers

Thanks for dropping by! 
Have a wonderful weekend
