So this week's Simply Stampin Challenge is another colour challenge....love it. I must admit I'm much more of a Subtles girl, but these colours really work well together and I'm definitely coming round to using more of the Brights collection.
I've used the stamp set Everything Eleanor and used the rock and roll technique to colour the edges of the flowers in Cherry Cobbler. I've also used 3 different embossing folders to add dimension and interest to the card - adding just a little Bakers Twine around the heart for a little accent. (Although the twine isn't the exact colour match with Tangerine Tango I don't think it looks too far off ;-) - mind you I do need to wear my glasses more, so I could be wrong!)
I hope you've all enjoyed the extended weekend, I know I have, it's been great to be able to have a lie in on a weekday! ;-)
Have a great week and I hope to see you next time.

A very simple card today, and as it's the Diamond Jubilee weekend it just had to be red, white and blue. This was the starting point for my earlier card, which I entered into the Simply Stampin Challenge for one of their previous colour challenges. I'd already decided to do this simple version for my swap at recent team training!
Right, I'd better get back to the cleaning.... I'm doing one of those jobs that you get half way through and begin to wonder why you started it in the first place! ;-) Only plus is I've got a week off work this week so once I've sorted all the washing and cleaning I can relax and spend some time creating...my favourite thing to do :-)
Hope you all have a great Bank Holiday weekend.
Be back again soon.
