Last colour challenge for March

Hello bloggers,

I have been a little slack in posting the last few weeks, just life happening.
Today I have the last Colour challenge for March at The Outlawz. This week it was Kimberly who chose the picture and colours, but she was clever and left the twist up to each one.

Sheepski Designs has been our sponsor this past month with her lovely images, for which we thank Andrea.


 I used 2 shades of blue and the white for my colours and decided to leave the colouring for another week and for my twist decided to go with paper piecing, so added some of the papers that I used for her umbrella, bag and shopping bag. They are all from a  paper block that I have had for some time.
Added a few pearls just for a bit of glamour.

Will be entering a few challenges:

Crafting from the Heart #200...Anything goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #78...Anything goes
The Corrosive challenge  #3...Anything goes
Elliebelle's creative Moments... Papercrafter's Linky Party #8
Crafty Friends challenge #80...Anything goes

Thank you so much for visiting. Take care,

Love Ursula

Good morning friends,
It is time for another challenge at Let's Craft and Create. The challenge theme is always 'anything goes' but this month with the option of Easter which is only a few weeks away.  If you go and visit the blog you will see some gorgeous cards by the DT for inspiration.
There is a $10 gift certificate for the winner of the challenge, so we hope you will come and join us.

My card was made using the following:

Cardstock from my stash...both the colours have a slight shimmer to them.

I embossed the top layer with a very old Cuttlebug embossing folder.

The cross was made with  an old Nestibilities die. I used ribbon instead of the paper diecut around the cross. Attached with a pearl.

Sentiment was printed on my PC and cut with a Nellie's die.

Added pearls to finish.

I will enter the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations  #195...Anything goes
Crafting from the Heart #197 ...Anything goes
Use your Stuff ...Anything goes.
International Art and Soul #28...Emboss and use a die

Thank you for visiting, I do appreciate it. Take care and I hope that the warmer weather will soon be coming to those in the cold Northern parts of the world

Take care and see you soon.
Love Ursula.
