Colour Challenge CCCB

Hello ...
It's my turn to host at City Crafter this week and I am giving you all a colour challenge 


When I saw this beautiful photo on Pinterest I just loved it ... 
I love the shades of peach with the green and greys ... 

This is my interpretation


I used all digital papers here ... Even the sentiment is a digital 


I cut the little umbrella on the Cameo and gave it a 3D look and added some flowers, twine and liquid pearls


The grey paper are from Pink Petticoat and the others including the sentiment are from various sets courtesy of Design House Digital ... 

Our Guest designer this week is Elma from Germany ... her blog is well worth a visit ... just click the link and check out all her beautiful creations ...
And if you want to win a GD spot with us we'd love to have you ... Just link up your entry - If you're looking for more inspiration hop over to the blog and check out Elma and the other designers projects.

On another note ... Thank you for all your comments and your response to our new Library here in Liverpool ... the thing is ... the original building from around 1860 has just had an inner renovation and both an extension to the rear and a dome added to the top ... the outer building is still remains gloriously untouched being a listed building of historic interest ... 
Can you believe that this is the outside




I think the saying ... "Never judge a book by it cover" is so appropriate here Lol!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting

Beautiful colours, Ros...my favourites! I love your 3D umbrella and very apt sentiment. Gorgeous card! x

Love the colors you chose, Ros, and the umbrella is wonderful! Thanks for the pictures of the library as well. I love all the old English buildings. My youngest son and wife are in Scotland this week hiking and such! And yes, we too are safe for the moment! Expecting more storms today, hopefully not this far south. Have a beautiful Tuesday!

Love this. That sentiment is fan- love how you've coloured it in. Is the umbrella a silhouette shape? You've picked a great colour combo indeed!

You are right - you would never expect the inside of the library to look as it does. It's amazing when old and new can be combined to form something so intrigueing.
