Dream Big...



Good Morning and how are you all??
Today I am going to share with you my Colour Create Card. This week we have the colours of lemon, pink sorbet and chocolate chosen by the very talented Katy. She has picked the extra option of shabby chic. The DT cards this week are totally fabulous. The girlies come up with some beautiful interpretations of shabby chic.
For my card I have used one of the absolutely stunning new deisgn by Leanne Ellis which you can get over at Funky Kits. It seems that quite a few of the Dt have chosen to go with one of these stamps..very popular!! The one I have used is called dream. When I showed the coloured image to him he said it was 'curious!' But I LOVE it...something so elegant about them and grown -up. She is coloured with prismas and I have machine stitched all the layers on todays card.
The papers are K & Co and I wanted a country fabricy kind of feel to the papers..hence the sewing and distressing. The swirl is painted with Distress Crackel paint. Great stuff..dries hard with a cracked finish..perfectly aged without having to do a thing!


So thanks once again for stopping by. All your lovely comments are wonderful and so uplifting to read. A big shout to Paola who leaves the most wonderful comments and she doesn't have a blog so I can't return the favour, thanks Paola...I appreciate the time you take to come by and be so encouraging!
Hope you all have a very happy and restful Sunday. I am teacbing Sunday School today and I have a wonderful class of 7 and 8 year olds who are so polite and eager to learn. Then hopefully the sun will shine so we can spend some time outside:)

Naturally your card is beautiful.
I love the touches of pearl, flowers and crackle paint on the flourish. That is a very nice new stamp set, love your colouring, it's always perfect.

Have a great day,
Take care,
Paola
