Challenge 11 - Colour Combo x

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by - hope you're well x I can't believe it's time for another challenge already - this month has flown by so quickly! I've just been getting back into the 9-5 following my hols last month and we're very busy in the office at the moment so weeks seem to be going by even quicker than usual. The hubby and I have had a few lovely weekends with friends and family this month which has been great - I do love summer meet ups - managed to work our way through quite a few BBQ's (and alcoholic beverages) :-D 

I want to say a big thank you to the lovely ladies who entered our challenge last month - I loved the entries - there's something very cute about button cards x

I've run the numbers though the Random Number Generator again and the winner for the Sketch challenge is:


Congratulations sweetie – I’ll add your card to the winners wall today x If you email me at with your choice of 4 digis I’ll get them over to you. You can grab your winners badge from the sidebar too – any probs let me know x

As you can see from the title above this month’s challenge is Colour Combo - I've never done one of these before myself and I really enjoyed this one - hopefully it'll be a fun one for you guys too x x

As always, a winner will be chosen using the Random Number Generator and announced on the 1st of next month (when we launch the September challenge). They will have their choice of 4 free Flat Friends digi’s and their card will feature on our Wall of Fame for the month.

A Flat Friends digi must be used for your creation but there are some freebies that can be used if you don't already own one of my designs which can be accessed from the freebies tab above x

We've got a couple of gorgeous cards from our lovely DT gals as inspiration to get us going - a huge thanks from me to them as always x Hope you'll join us this month - we really look forward to seeing your lovely work x x

Digi hugs and xx's   

Hi everyone, Kathy here. I love the color palette Em picked for us this time. It's so pretty and sophisticated. For my card I used Taylor Camping Day. She was so much fun to color in with my copics and I glazed her little glasses so they look real! Hope you will find the time to join our challenge and play along for a chance to win some gorgeous digis!

Sally - Hi everyone.  This month's challenge is Colour Combinations - Pink Grey and Black.  What a lovely combo. I printed out one of Emma's Summer Digis and coloured her with my Graph'it markers in grey and pink. I then die cut the image with a scallop oval and used my pan pastels to soften the edges, matted her on grey and then black.  Added a bow and paper flowers and pearls. Very sophisticated I think.

Hiya, Em here x x I've never done a colour combo card before so really enjoyed making this one :-) I went with the 'Graduation Celebration' digi, decorated my pink card using the Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch, and placed some black card on top of that. I cut the 'congrats' (which was supposed to be congratulations but I ran out of space lol) with the Tim Holtz Decorative Strip Alphabet die and finished the card off by mounting the digi using some foam pads to give it a bit of a 3D feel. The papers I used were the fushia & black colour base pastel cards from Hobbycraft and a grey sheet from the 'Darling Dear' My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad.
