...........I'm just scraping in with my card for this month's Roses Challenge which is meant to post the last Sunday of each month. It was Betty's turn to pick the challenge this month and she chose a colour challenge for us.
Now see the last colour on the right......The hall in this house was painted that very colour. The master bedroom (which is yet to be changed and as yet remains unoccupied) is also this shade with some pink thrown in for good measure!!! See the first colour? well that's a bit more me :) Oh Betty you made me laugh out loud with your challenge!!
Here's what I came up with and Betty I hope you approve.....
For this CAS card I've sponged.......(yep I keep trying with my sponges) three stripes using different shades of mauve. Between the stripes I stamped this pretty border from Waltzingmouse Stamps Florentine Frippery. The label is also a WMS image from Vintage Labels 25 cut with a Spellbinder die and popped up on foam tabs. Some pretty ribbon and job done!
I hope you'll go see what these very talented ladies have come up with for the challenge this month. The links can be found under The Roses tab at the top of my blog page.
Hope you've enjoyed a good week end with some sunshine. It's been glorious here and I'm pleased to say we're tidy again after the painters worked wonders in just over a week! I even managed to unpack my 'good' china into the sideboard. The search for tiles for the en-suite is now on and it's a challenge trying to find something both Ian and I agree on :). Wish me luck!!!!
