A new colour combo for me.....


I wanted to try something a little different so I've had a go with a colour combo I've never used before - red and yellow..... What do you think? I was kind of nervous putting this together but I think it's worked out ok.

I won the image in a candy win from Sarpreet (thankyou!) and coloured her with my promarkers. The sentiment is another from Sentiments 4 You.

The papers were freebies I got ages ago... not sure where from.

Other things I used:
Xcut border punch
Flower punch
Brads and ribbon from stash

Crafty ribbons - Anything goes
Creative inspirations - Anything goes
Fab 'n' Funky - Bingo (diagonal: stamped image, ribbon, flowers)

Anyway, hope you like it! I'm off to get some exercise! I need all the help I can get to fit into my wedding dress next year!!!! I've lost just over a stone now and feeling very pleased with myself :-)

Love 'n' hugs,

Congrats on your weight loss. Keep it up, or should that be keep it off?!

Love the way your background paper is just perfect for the image, the dots on the toadstool and the hearts on the BP really draw your eye in.

Wow!!! That's really good to lose a stone, I've lost just over 3 Stone, in 6 months. Mainly down to a hugh medical prblem.

Your card is lovely, it's often the case that you don't think things go together then you've finished and the card looks fantastic.

Thanks for joining us at Fab 'n' Funky this week.
