Crafts 4 Eternity - Colour Challenge

Spring is in the air at Crafts 4 Eternity! This week's challenge is  to use a gorgeous colour scheme, green & yellow. How refreshing!!

I've just realised, this is my second card in succession of a girl hugging her teddy. This one though, is by Elisabeth Bell for Belles & Whistles. She's coloured with Distress Inks & the Papers are by Magnolia. The flowers are a mix from Wild Orchid Crafts, Hobbycraft & Bizzy Becs. I used a Cuttlebug die cut in the corner & a few adhesive gems to add a little sparkle.

This is not a colour scheme I would ever have chosen myself, but I love how she turned out. For more inspiration, hop on over to the Crafts 4 Eternity blog to see the wonderful creations of my fellow D-teamies.

I am also entering this card at Papertake Weekly, where this week, 'Anything Goes'

The layout uses the sketch at Sketch Saturday

Allsorts Challenge wants to see cards witth 'Bloomimg Blossoms'.

So there you go. Looks like Spring may be back again, at least for the weekend. So whatever you are up to , make the most of it!

Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
