CTD#320


Hi everyone!!!


Can't believe it's end of November already!!!   This will be my last post as Guest Designer for November, over at the Color Throwdown Blog.  I really want to thank Wanda and the rest of the DT for giving me this opportunity to be their GD.  How much fun I had working with their lovely photo's and colours these last four weeks!!!!  A great big THANK YOU from me, Ladies!!!

Hope you have already had a look at the great cards the DT has made for this week - it's all over at the Color Throwdown Blog!!!

What a great photo and lovely colours again:

                                          



This is the card I have made using some elements from the photo and the four colours:






The stamp I've used is part of a 'Heirloom Ornament' stamp set by Spellbinders that I got as a free gift with a magazine long ago.
Daisy dies by MFT.
Frames cut with Spellbinders nesties.
Some black plastic dots, bling and a silver bow finish it off.


Thanks you so much for stopping by - always such a great pleasure to have you here!!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra

Good Morning my dear friend... received you email and will respond soon. What a beautiful creation. You nailed the challenge with those awesome colours. Love the heat embossing on that bauble. It is something I have yet to try. Big hugs, Sharon xx

Pragtige rame en volging van die foto!! Ai daardie berg in die agtergrond laat my hart warm klop. My absolute gunsteling plek in Suid-Afrika is daardie wereld, Knysna, Sedgefield, George.

Lovely card Petra. The heat embossed ornament is so pretty! Elegant is a better word... and to think of it that you got it for FREE! The touch of colors with the sweet little flowers are an awesome idea... also love the frames. Great use of this weeks color!

Petra...you rocked your DT gig at Color Throwdown!

I absolutely love your interpretation of the inspiration photo. You've captured the elements so beautifully in your card - colors, elements, design. Nice touch placing the silver frame over the blue flower in the top right hand corner - unpredictable and sooooo effective!

Petra, Thanks for your visit & kind comment, and your Christmas wishes. I send the same right back to you, that you & your family will have a safe journey & a very Merry Christmas spent with your loved ones. I will be taking some time away in the New Year, as my craft area really does need a good sorting. So Happy New Year as well. Big hugs, and so much have I enjoyed visiting and seeing all your wonderful cards this year. Looking forward to doing the same in 2015!
