Color Combos 199 Challenge

This weeks focus was not only on some bright fresh colours but tiny type lettering. Why not hop over to CCG and check out what all the Design Team members did.

I decided to not only do a layout but I would throw in a card as well. I don't usually make cards, seems such a waste if they are thrown in the bin. I staggered the letters and I decided to go with a film strip to mimick looking into the bowls, something like that anyway.

Products used - White bazzill cardstock, Matha Steward doiley punch, Kaiser Dress form & flower, Fancy Pants buttons, Basic Grey Alphas and Tim Holts die cut.

My Layout this week is of my Niece, I very rarley get to see her so it was nice to spend my Christmas with her since, ummmm never have I had that opportunity in the picture she is 17.

I decided to go with a black background to make the colours look that much brighter, I used papers from Cosmo Cricket Upcycle range, and the leaves are left over paper that I cut the red flowers from in my last CCG layout from Pink Paislee fascinating paper. I used PP house of 3 fibre and tiny stickers from Lime Twist MME. Other bits are are left overs found in my stash.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave. Hope to see over at CCG.

Pin It!
