DCM March Colour Combo

This week is the third of our 'Colour Combo of the Month Challenges' at Daring Cardmakers and it's Kathy's turn to choose the colours...

Caramel, Pale Lemon, Duck-egg Blue
and a touch of Gold


Here is my card...


This was such a gorgeous colour combo, although I struggled to find the right shades to match exactly. I used various MME papers to create the layers, the sentiment is from WMS' Roses in Bloom set stamped in gathered twigs Distress Ink. The beautiful bloom is made with the Spellbinders Blossom One die, I gently curled the edge of the petals to help shape it. I hand cut the brown leaves and tucked behind the rose. I added a little scallop lace and button twine to finish the card.


I made this card with my mum in mind for Mothers Day, although didn't really think through sending such a bulky card overseas - hopefully it won't get too squashed!!
