UK crafters thread challenge- shocking pink and lime green!!

Hello peeps!!!!!!!
well, the weather here today is blurgh!!!!!!! grey,rainy,dull,blurgh!!! so I was quite happy to do my uk crafters thread challege. This week it was to use shocking pink and lime green, they are not colours I have used before so this was a little bit like stepping out of my comfortable colours box!!!! lol!!!!! I had a really nice download called flirty snowflakes from Karen's blog that i love to visit, you should go there she is awesome.
I cuttlebugged the pink with snowflakes and the green with swiss dots to make it a bit more christmassy. I left a couple of the swirly bits from the green on and they just overlapped the pink nicely and I popped a bit of green bling on the ends of them.
I layered up the christmas tree and popped some pink bling on it for baubles ( it was nice to do as there were little baubles printed on there already!! ) and used my scalloped oval and oval punch that I got from rosy again ( oooooh i love,love,love it!!!! if you haven't got it you NEED it!!!!! lol!!!!!)
I did a little bit of pink metallic thread stitching and popped the sentiment on my ovals with my computer!!! the sentiment is part of that lovely 'have yourself a merry little christmas' song!! I decided it was a good one because it was such a bright card!!!!!!!!
Be warned guys, it is crafty night tomorrow night and sam will be bringing more images for the boutique and Ihave had some really cute ideas too!!!!!


  1. Great card! You did well for someone who used colors out of their comfort zone :) Love the swirls on the green. Just beautiful!
