Spring Fling ...





Our lovely Cheryl is hosting for us this week at City Crafter Challenge and this week we have a colour challenge based on this beautiful photo ... 



How gorgeous is that ... pretty  pinks ... blues and greens ... those are the colours we are to use
I adore these dreamy colours and played around for a while till I was happy with my card ...


Well it had to be roses for me  ... seeing as how I had no peonies ... which I think are in the photo ...
So I cut a pretty rose from a sheet of scrapbook paper ... I know ... just like that I cut it right up!
the papers are a hybrid mix here ... the sweet green is from Prima's Jack and Jill range and the blue print paper is digital by Jen Allyson from Digital House Designs again ... 


The little card is from Iralamija's Etsy store and I'll let you into a secret as to where I got that beautiful row of delicate roses ... Primark! Yes we have a Primark clothes and accessories store here in Liverpool city centre ... I don't get to visit that much but when I do I pick up all sorts of earrings and things that I can use in my crafting ... this was a hair band and the whole strip of roses measure about 14" long.. and for £1 ... yes £1 ... I think it is great ... But don't tell everyone ok?
  City Crafters have none other than Deb Hickman "A world Of Imagination"as our Guest Designer this week ... if you haven't seen her creations ... you need too ... she is awesome at Scrapbooking as well as cards ... And of course it wouldn't be a challenge without a prize ... and our lovely Cheryl is also sponsoring the prize!! 
I'm not going to tell you what it is ... you will just have to pop over to the blog to see for yourself ...
Look forward to seeing you there!

Your card is really dreamy and beautiful. It would be good for so many occasions such as weddings and anniversaries.
I think your find in Primark is amazing and fantastic value and peonies and roses, in some ways are very similar.
Lovely work!!
