A Colour Challenge at Our Creative Corner

Evening Everyone,
Wow what a difference in the weather again today. It has felt really quite chilly here today even with the sun shining through occasionally. Whathas it been like in your neck of the woods??
In a bid to put a cheery feel on the proceedings this is the card that I made following the colour challenge over at Our Creative Corner.
I am having so much fun following the challenges that they post each week.
The background for the card has been made using the technique that I found when I was checking out some of the older posts at Crafty Bloggers Network. This one was a Show and Tell.
It is a fantastic way to use up some of those small strips of background paper that we all hoard. You know the ones too good to throw away but you don't know what an earth you are going to do with them because they are a bit small. Well now you do. I have actually made several panels.
For this card I was obviously very particular in my colour choice to match the challenge, but the other panels that I have made are just strips put together because they look good!!
The Show and Tell tutorial suggests stitching the strips together with a sewing machine, but as I don't have easy access to one I decided to add some stitching with my trusty fine black pen.
The stamped panels are made using a stamp set Magenta Spring Cling available from any Woodware stockist. I coloured them using my distress inks and a waterbrush.
I mounted each of the individual squares onto black glossy card to make them 'pop'
My 'twist' to the challenge is the pale pink and white ribbons across the centre of the card, I hope that counts.
I have just got back from a meal out with all of the Management team at work. A gift from 'The Boss' to say thank you for our superb Audit score.
We went to one of those All You Can Eat places, and I am totally stuffed.
I think I had better get to bed now, all though really I should be going for a very long walk lol.
Night night

  7. Hello Kim
    Thank you for entering such a superb card for our Challenge at Our Creative Corner, you have certainly matched the colour palette; I guess we can count the spotted panel as circles, as I do not think that Lori classes ribbon as fabric, however I am sure you will not be disqualified, I am loving how you have designed the card it looks very effective. I like it very much.
