Colour Create Challenge

Colour Create is a new challenge blog to me, and as I love trying out different colour combination on my cards I thought I would make one on this week’s theme – Chocolate, Coffee and Cream – yum!  There is also an extra challenge, which is to add some distressing to the card.

Here is my card, using one of the very gorgeous ‘Gorjuss Girls’, from Sugar Nellie, for my image.  The swirls in the background were stamped with a Hero Arts clear stamp. The oval sentiment is from a new stamp set in the current mini catalogue from Stampin’ Up, as is the oval scalloped punch that I used to punch it out.  The ‘distressed’ brown cardstock is by DCWV; this has a white core that can be rubbed with sandpaper to give a worn look.  The corner accent is a Cuttlebug die-cut, and the flowers are by Prima.  The ribbon, DP and brads are all from my stash.
