CDAC progressive challenge 5

Good morning friends,
What a day yesterday was. Started of cloudy, with a prediction of heavy rains. Got darker, the sun came out, got grey, the sun came out...no rain....THEN at about 3pm some thunder and hail, but very small stones and only a minute or two...so not really much water had fallen.....BUT about an hour later, it got dark and then.....hailstones like small eggs came pounding down.....waited for the windows to go, but thankfully they stayed whole. Our garden now has a green carpet everywhere and all the trees have been considerably "thinned out". Not sure how much fruit is left on the trees.  Well that's nature for you....... Hope no more of that for now. Right now, beautiful blue skies.
On to my card for today. This is the first of the cards for the progressive challenge over at CDAC, where we are given 5 images to create with. The last challenge I snuck in at the death and only managed to upload one card before cutoff, so this week I intend to be a little earlier.


The added challenge was to use colours from the cool side of the colour wheel, so this is what I have done.
Paper....Pieces from my stash...I think the navy is Papermania...not too sure.
Image: from SSBS Design coloured with Distress inkpads, mounted onto a doily cut from a Marianne design die.
Sentiment computer generated, finished off with some brads and a gingerbread man button.
Busy with some more of the images for this challenge, hope to get them done this weekend, but first have a garden to tidy up.
Take care, have fun and see you soon.

I remember the hailstorms when we lived in the old Transvaal... Thankfully they're very far and few between in the Cape. A stunning card Ursula. Just love it. Good luck with the challenge. hugs Sharon x
