Kristina's challenge #26






















Here are my two entries for Kristina's colour challenge this week. When I saw the colours, I immediately thought of a baby card but ended up using flowers!! I have seen quite a few cards using the scallop punch for flowers and really don't know who thought of the original idea. Karen has a lovely card on her blog done in a similar way.


The other card has the block background which is always nice I think. I used DSP papers from Summer Picnic and Apple Cider packs and from the Palette O' Prints that was a SU promotion earlier. The sets I used for this card are Its Your Birthday and Live Your Dream.


Colours were Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Whisper White.
