Colour me Silly!

It's Juliet's turn to challenge us over on Dottie's World this week.

"Hi, Juliet here again today hoping to find you all eager to get crafting!The challenge this week is inspired by fireworks and, as we were limited to one colour last week, this week I want to see LOTS OF COLOURS on your cards - the more the merrier! As usual, you must include one of the Charmed Downloads too, so get those papers out and start creating!!! "

Pop over to Dottie's World to see some of the stunning creations the rest of the Design Team have come up with-I am really loving the new Animal Magic Downloads

I struggled with this one, had the ideas again but just couldn't decide on papers- you know when you have something in your head but you just haven't the right stuff on your desk to get the look. I must have changed my mind over what image to use 3 or 4 times and eventually finished my card approaching 1am this morning!

LOL-even then I struggled as I couldn't find half the things I needed in my wrecked craft room..including my Quickutz holly fasteners die...if it's still under that pile of stash...will I EVER see it again I wonder.

Right, enough waffle lets get on with it-here's what I eventually ended up with.

Not sure this actually works but I used We R Memory Keepers with a strip of BG Colour me silly-Wonder as a ribbon effect ( the colours matched perfectly and it was the only Colour me Silly paper I had.) I tried to used all the colours in the paper picking out the turquiose blue for the flower and fasteners. I sat a little Xmas hat on the dog, but I wasn't happy with it and at that time I was lucky enough to still have my eyes open so I left it!
I am happy with it as a card- but don't feel it's Christmassy enough-I might add a little something....just not sure what yet. What I do know is that this image "Scruff" has got to be one of my favs. Isn't he adorable?

He sure is adorable the little champ, and so is your card! Gorgeous work as always; you shine girl! xxx

Sarah C said...

Just had a thought. Scary I know, but if ou want to make it more Christmassy, how about maybe putting a Christmas hat on Scruff??? xxx
