CR84FN26

Good Morning to you ... 
I hope you are enjoying the day 
It's been a lovely Bank Holiday here .. 4 days of glorious sunshine which is very rare for the UK ... it nearly always rains on Bank Holidays ... 
I have a card I made for this weeks colour challenge at CR84FN ... here is the inspiration picture and another amazing quotation ...


and my card ...


I had a scrap of pale yellow which I stamped pretty roses onto to give that rich gold colour and adhered this to a piece of corrugated card ...
The postcard is a digital image from Iralamija's Etsy shop and the mushroom image is also from Etsy Madebyjanet ...


I'm really loving these soft colours ... and I have to say that without these challenges I probably would never have come up with these pretty combinations ... I have grown so much from following sketches, colour combinations and techniques ... Thank you to all you challenge blogs out there for the fun and encouragement ...

Have a lovely day
Till soon ... keep safe
