We are now well into the second half of February, and I do hope that our very hot weather is going to start cooling a little. Thankful at least we had some lovely rain last night, that should cool it a little. I am so ready for autumn.
This week in the Colour challenge at The Outlawz we have another of our special challenges, where you get to do a lot of the choosing. Laurian has selected this lovely inspirational photo and given the colour blue that must be used. You can choose 2 more colours (just tell us which they are) and the twist is also your choice. How much fun is that.
We have also introduced a new feature...Colour spotlight in which we spotlight a card from the previous week. maybe something different, or it just appeals to us for some reason...so you need to come back each week if you have entered a card and see, just maybe yours has been spotted.
Our sponsor this month is Paper Nest Dolls and most of the DT have used one of the lovely girly images for their cards. Do pop in and see what they have made for inspiration.
I have made a gatefold card this week, used the colours blue, yellow and red and the twist is add butterflies.
The blue patterned paper was a freebie in a magazine some years ago. The paper on the inside with the butterflies is also quite old and is from a paper pad
The image is Butterfly friend and I coloured it with Distress inkpads and cut out with a Nellie's MFD
The butterfly border on the front is a Noor design by Joycrafts.
Sentiment is computer generated and cut with a Nellie's die.
A ribbon for closing and pearl and bling to finish.
