Colour Create #23

Hi peeps, this is another one of my cards that i managed to make yesterday, but decided not to load up until today ... gonna try eeking them out over the week instead of mass posting at the weekend and silence through the week lol!

This weeks colours are Blue and White, with the optional extra of VINTAGE.

I was really pleased that we were back to using 2 colours for the Colour Create challenge ... 4 is a bit extreme in my opinion .... not that, that counts for anything these days pmsl! Anyhow, I did thoroughly enjoy making this card and am dead pleased with the results.

As you can see from the sentiment this is another card i made for my estranged ... emphasis on the strange .... sister. Another card that she wont get, cos its just too flippin' good for her. I've taken the sentiment off now and changed it to Sister-in-law for my parents to give to my Auntie and instead used the card that i made my Mum for Mother's Day for my sister lol! My parents don't keep the cards i make for them .... i know ... how rude?! I can't bear for them to be thrown away after all my hard work, so i have them back and recycle them lol .... yes i'm tight! I can live with her having one that was made for someone else, but just couldn't get my head round making one especially for her ... odd i know.

CS ~ Stash, DP's ~ Summer Driggs, Image ~ Maribel, coloured with Whisper Strokes, Flowers and pearls ~ Stash, Sentiment ~ PC Generated, Tools ~ Sewing Machine, Woodware Leaf Punch and Nesties
