Very bright colour combo!

Ed:  Can you believe it - it's a DRAW!!!  Back next week!!!!!

I am listening to the AFL Grand Final on the radio, and currently the Saints are WINNING!!! YEAH......but for how long?

Anyway, to keep the excitement level down I have been card making as well. I decided to use the weekly colour challenge at Colour Throwdown, which looked quite pretty on line, but when I got the colours together (or similar in the case of River Rock) boy, are they bright!  Anyway, having chosen my colours, I then looked at the Annabelle Stamps Bling Sketch ABSCO#30 and used that to create a card.  Here it is:

I don't have a Bigshot or die to cut out a scalloped circle, so used my SU Medallion Stamp, and trimmed a sort-of scalloped circle from that; my Cuttlebug was used for the smaller circle, and the image comes from SU Touch of Nature set, as does the sentiment.  My Martha Stewart edge punch was used for the top, and the bling is really pale blue but looks slightly green in the light. Melon Mambo, Pacific Blue and some Co' ordination card that that is nearly the same as River Rock. Below is inside the card, using the rest of the sentiment.

This card is a straight case from Bleu Bella  - it looked so nice I had a go: my white embossed pattern is from WMS - Victorian Fripperie, and the flowers in the circle are from SU Simple Somethings (my very first SU stamp set). The sentiment is from SU Warm Words.

Yesterday, the tiler was here doing the floor for the new kitchen. So, I was confined to the craft room again. In the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft magazine for this month, devoted to Christmas cards, there was one article showing the use of embossed metal shim. I have the dove embossing folder, and recognised it being used in the article, so cased the ideas and created three cards for Christmas!

Come on the Saints.......we cannot stand a year with Collingwood as winners!!!!

Hi there I love the happiness card. I also decided to punch a hole in a card (have not posted it yet) but then didn't know what to put in the hole.
Your idea was very clever.
