Dream Valley 14 - Citrus Colour Theme


It's time for another challenge from Dream Valley! This time we want you to use our citrus colour scheme: 

Don't you just love those fab, zingy colours??? Just perfect for brightening up this lovely, erm "Summer" we're having! We are lucky enough to be sponsored by Stitchy Bear who gave the DT some fab images to play with and are giving our lucky winner $10.00 to spend in their store :-)

I chose to use Flight of Fantasy Silhouette on my card:

I've been a good girl and used up some leftover paper scraps for this one.... The yellow gingham and orange flowers papers are from Crafts Too and the green is limeade filigree from Doodlebug. I've matted onto different coloured card and then onto black to make them stand out a bit. The ribbon and brads are from my stash and then I've made another of my scrunchy flowers using some lemon card cut with scalloped circle nesties.... I've added a bit of faux stitching around the edges using a brush marker.

I've followed the fab sketch over at Cupcake Craft Challenges.

Right.... Another busy day today. I need to get some more done on my allotment and I've got the two littl'uns to entertain.... I'm fast running out of ideas. Why do they make the summer hols so long? We've done everything and been everywhere. Twice! We made some yummy gingerbread men yesterday... perhaps we should decorate them???

Enjoy the rest of the weekend! And don't forget to pop over to Dream Valley to see all the zingy loveliness the other DT members have created :-)

Love 'n' hugs,

Those fantasy silhouettes are lovely, aren't they?! I love what you've done here, the flower is just scrummy!

Have a good day with the littl'uns!
