Thank You Kindly (The Color Room CRC#33)

Thursday, November 25, 2010

When I saw the fab sketch for this week's Color Room Card (CRC#33) challenge I knew I had to play along!! And the beautiful Color Room Palette #33, sooo pretty!! Here's the sketch.

And the pretty color palette (with sketch for a layout).

I had so much fun making this card, nice to take a break from all the Christmas cards!! I got a chance to use some pretty papers I bought at a craft fair a few weeks ago, Rose Garden from Papermania. It's so feminine and delicate, love it!

I made the flowers using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die (I can make flowers faster now!) and paper from the Rose Garden pad, I also made some from pale pink tissue paper, a doily and some pink tulle.

I added a little bit of quilling too, the little pink flower and some quilled leaf shapes. The flower is really easy to make, just five tight closed coils glued together on each side with a pearl in the centre. There's a few other bits in there too, including a fabric covered button, lace, some Zva Creative crystals and some more buttons.

The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse Stamps, the border frame is from Vintage Labels No.4 also from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 die for the label.

Hope you have a lovely day! (Especially if you're celebrating Thanksgiving!) It's getting pretty chilly here, don't forget to feed the birds!
