Colour Create WK 10

I'm sooooo happy today as I am on hols from work until next Wednesday and boy does it feel good to have the break :)

I don't know if its just that I've been over tired this last week but I had a real crisis of confidence making this card last night, I hated my basic colouring skills and I couldn't get any layout I tried to work for me, despite the fact that I loved the colours for this challenge and my card shoulda' come together with no problems. Poor hubby last night, I think he thought I was about to sell all my craft stuff lol! Anyhoo, tantrum over and onto the details of my card for the Colour Create Challenge.....with a colour scheme of Duck Egg Blue & Rose...such scrummy colours! I finally inked up one of my new Anya stamps and I coloured her (very badly) with PM's. The design papers were free with a mag ages ago, in fact the same mag that last weeks stripey papers came from lol! I've used my Fiskars Daisy border punch (again) and oval nesties and I stamped the sentiment using an Elzybells stamp. The ribbon, flowers, brad and gems are all from my stash. TFL :)

I don't know what you're talking about here Mrs, your colouring and design look perfect so it must have been that you were feeling tired. Your Anya is so cute, love those funky socks LOL and the paper with your punched border is gorgeous. I love it all. Glad you have some time off Donna, it'll be so nice to relax for a few days. Hugs, Chris xxx

Hi Donna

I think the card is great, I really can't see why it troubled you so much, the colouring looks spot on to me & I love the colour scheme too.

I think your cards are great & I find your blog so inspirational, so just keep on doing what you're doing (so well).

All the best

Hi Donna, I'm giggling, it's so frustrating when cards don't translate from head to paper like you want them to. I should know - many of mine don't!!
Having said that I think this is gorgeous - fabulous use of the colours with those fantastic papers.
Great accents and beautifully coloured Anya.
Thanks for joining us at CC.
hugs Heather xx

Donna, this is gorgeous! Gosh, you are way too hard on yourself! Though we all need a tantrum once in awhile! So glad you're on holiday...we all need that too!!!
I think your card is designed beautifully, if your coloring is off, I certainly can't see it from here! :) Your free papers are lovely too! Love all the details!
I hope you have a chance to put your feet up and rest this weekend!
Happy Easter!
Blessings, Maria
