Colour Create - 16 - and Dutch Dare - 60th card


What absolutely delicious colours they are for this week 16 of Colour Create challenge. Thank you Kim :-)

Over at the Dutch Dare the challenge is Glitter and Bling, yippee!

I was asked for another 60th birthday card and couldn't resist this colour combination.

Optional extras this week are to add gloss, glitter or glaze.
Surprise, surprise I chose glitter.

I love this image but can't remember where she came from.The BP's are from Gina Miller Sweet Pea collection.
Stitching, distressing and hand made flowers complete this, along with a die-cut swirl (glittered), punched leaves, organza bow and a large diamonte? brad.

The no:60 on the blue flower is under a Papermania dome sticker. I found these at the bottom of my 'bittybob' drawer. They have been hiding there for ages and have started to curl up.
The flowers have been Cuttlebugged, some with Devine Swirls, the others with Swiss Dots embossing folders. Everything is edged with ColorBox chalk inkpad - Azurite.

Thank you for looking in and for any comments, which are happily received :-)
