Mel's colour challenge!

Mel I hope you are sitting down when you read this - so long since I joined one of your colour challenges!!

The colours in Mel's challenge are Lavender Lace, Green Galore, Chocolate Chip and White. Again I used the set Embrace Life which is in the new mini catty to be released on the 1st December. I also used the new Scallop Edge punch that is in the mini as well! I had big reservations about buying this punch as I have had border punches in the past and I managed to break two and others do not punch cardstock well at all.

However this punch is wonderful - you can do so much with it and it has measurements for lining up corners etc on it.

The base card here has been stamped with bleach - probably hard to see on most computer screens. I lightly watercoloured the flowers and added them to the branch. The bigger ones have a little Dazzling Diamonds on them. The photo corners are actually from Chocolate Chip card, not black as they look in the photo. Just a simple card but I feel there is enough on it. Hope you like it Mel!!

I like it Jean. The bleached background is a good idea, can just see it. Good on you for joining another challenge.
