Cute Card Thursday Challenge 72 & ABC...A

Morning everyone, this card is for Cute Card Thursday Challenge 72 where they have a colour combo of teal and red to follow. I don't often do colour combos and when I first saw this one I thought no, I have nothing that could be described as teal..... or so I thought.... when doing yesterdays card I was looking through a box of A5 card from the paper mill that Jeff's Mum very kindly gave me and low and behold I found a couple of teal coloured pieces.... so I just had to use them! So after saying I rarely do smaller cards, I have two on the trot! I will certainly be doing some more of them as I really like the simplicity. I am also entering this card into the ABC Challenge where the theme is anything goes.

For my card I used a sugar nellie daisy image that I got from a blog bud and she is coloured with distress inks. I ran half the white card through my cuttlebug, embossing it with the swiss dots folder and the red DP is from Pebbles inc. To keep with the whole spots theme, I used some red and white polka dot ribbon from my stash. This is a really simple card but I really love how it has turned out!

Finally a close up of Daisy, and I have just realized I have forgot to use my inkssentials pen for the highlights! Oh well.... never mind!

Card/Paper: Teal and white card, pebbles inc
Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Daisy
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, vintage photo, peeled paint, spiced marmalade, fired brick, weathered wood, broken china
Embellishments: Ribbon, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, swiss dots folder, water brush, corner rounder punch

Thanks for looking x

    I love your card.

    I too have Daisy - I think she is lovely - no matter what colour she is wearing she looks beautiful. (If only I could be like Daisy LOL!!!).

    Personally I have never dressed her in red and white. Must give that a try - along with all the other colours I haven't dressed her in yet!!

    Love Jules xx
