Colour Create challenge 48 - Di's choice-Baby Pink, Black and Peach + Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge 31

Good morning everyone...hows everyone today?...well and happy I hope, is it just me or is the light very grey even on the sunniest days, could it be something to do with the volcano do you think...I was sitting outside yesterday and the white on all the building seems grey...oh no don't tell me I need my eyes retested yet again lol...my card for today is for our new challenge over at Colour Create...its a stunning colour choice of Pink, Black and Peach with the added option of Lace or Tulle this choice was picked by our fantastically talented teamie Di, fantastic choice Di I love this combo is so fresh and pretty...I used this gorgeous little Fairy Mae from Some Odd Girl isn't she so cute, I love her hair, I used papers from the Panduro Kitchen Garden Tilda paper pad, don't you just love these scrummy papers...the lace was a scrap from my local sewing shop my Daughter wanted some material scraps to try out the sewing machine I bought her for her birthday so I bought a huge bagful for £4 from there and in amongst the material was loads of scrap of lace and thick ribbon...ooooohhhhh I love a bargain don't you...I added some peach coloured ribbon and used the papers to paper piece the fairy's clothes and headband...the sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp but I forgot the sentiment so I hope it still counts...I hope you like it and if you have time don't forget to hop on over to Colour Create to have a look at the amazing DT's work...wow they are incredible...have a brilliant day
