Just Us Girls Colour Challenge

Today's post is for the Colour Challenge over at Just Us Girls.  I loved the sound of the colours, Hot Pink, Lime Green and Teal, so bright and fresh! I've teamed them with white and added a little bit of cork into the mix.  I was soo excited when the cork sheets turned up.  I've been seeing lots of cork used in papercraft projects lately and I was itching to give it a try.  I'll come back to that later! 

I was inpsired by the sketch at CPS, but infact when finished the only bit that was actually like the sketch was the '21' box and the lines of stitching! Oh Well.  I used one of my new stamp sets from Stampin Up: Fifth Avenue Floral.  Love the way this turned out and that it is not very 'me', so that is always good to step outside your comfort zone.

Here is an alternate view.

And a close up.  The pink flower is popped up on dimensionals.
Now, back to that Cork.  I bought two thicknesses: 0.8mm and 1.5mm.  I used the 0.8mm on the card.  It was cut easily with nestibilities in the Big Shot and also, to my amazement, was easily cut with a Fiskars and Stampin Up scallop edge punch (I used the SU one on the card).   The 1.5mm would not go through the punches, but it does go through the Big Shot fairly easily.  I even used it with my delicate Butterfly die and it worked, with a little bit of gentle coaxing out.  I'll use that on another card another day.

Be sure to check out all the other creations by the Design Team.  And then get busy creating and uploading.  Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day!
