Did you wonder where this had gone to??? - Colour Create challenge - Liz' choice Pink, Blue and Brown

Good morning everyone do you have anything exciting planned for this Easter weekend...Phil's away at the motorbikes marshaling again this weekend so I don't think I will be up to much, it was fantastic to spend the afternoon with my Dad yesterday he looks so well and has a bit of a tan too even though he was only in England, hes a real sun worshiper though just a hint of sun and hes out in the garden, he had a fab time but while he was away in Belfast before he flew to England he was at a restaurant with my Sister and someone reversed into the side of his new car...but at least she was very polite and even waited until they came out of the restaurant to tell them so she didn't spoil their meal, but its all going to be sorted out by the insurance companies and it could have been a lot worse at least no one was hurt, but my Dad had a few moans anyway...right onto my card for today, did anyone wonder where this had gone too...well because of the blog hop I had to keep it until today to show you...this is for our new challenge at Colour Create challenge, this time is the wonderful Liz's choice and she chose Blue, Pink and Brown

this is a fab choice isn't it and the added option is to either use the cracked glass method or acetate on your card...I used acetate, I bought this sheet of Kanban glittered acetate last year at the NEC, the gorgeous cutie image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and called Alice Jumping Rope, look at look on her little face...I coloured her with distress inks, the lush blue papers are from the Whiff of Joy 6x6 paper pad from Bunny Zoe's crafts, I finished with some fantastically drool worthy chocolate coloured satin and a couple of blue and pink offcuts of ribbon, the sketch I made up as I went along and I'm entering this for the Totally Gorjuss Bling it on challenge and the Cute Card Thursday No Text challenge too...with Phil away I think I will have a mooch round town and see what goodies I can pick up, you never know do you...whatever your up to have a fantastic day everyone
