Peaches and Cream

It's time for another challenge at Lili's Little Fairies - the theme this time is 'peaches and cream' and we are sponsored by Which Craft UK with a pack of super pop up cards for our winner. Some of the DT have been having fun with them too .. .. so pop over and take a look.

Back to my card, I have used one of the new LOTV baby stamps and coloured with my Copics, although deciding what shade peach actually was caused me some head scratching and a couple of mishaps! In the end I went with the soft shades of R00, R20, R21 & R22 for my peach shades and E50, E81, E51 & E53 for the creams. My circle sentiment is from the clear LOTV set I've just acquired and it's matted with a circle cut from the Marianne snowflake die LRO124.

But, when it came to finding papers I was well and truly stumped ... and in the end ordered the Thimbles Too paper pack from Nitwits as it looked peachy on my screen. However, when I printed out the papers they looked rather pink, but hopefully still looking peachy! I've inked the edges of the papers and the image with Sahara Sand Versamagic chalk ink and I've used textured cream and peachy pink cardstock for matting and cutting my embellishments, plus a length of peachy pink ric-rac I found in my stash and 3 little peach gems to finish off the flowers. The floral sprays are created from Marianne dies, LRO106, LRO142, LRO156, and LRO157 layered with 3d foam pads to give some dimension and interest but they will squash down for posting!

Both the Allsorts and Creative Inspirations challenge blogs have an anything goes theme again this week so I can enter my card with them. And a new challenge blog I just discovered is the Cutie Pie challenge, so here's my first card for their floral theme.

I'm having internet problems again - buffering is what my son says is happening. It does mean that trying to load any pages with graphics takes forever, or just doesn't happen. And shutting down the pages can take just as long! We have to wait until the end of this year for the local exchange to be upgraded and then hopefully it may improve, although as we are several miles away from it, who knows! It does mean that I'm not able to get around to everybody leaving me comments, or to post comments for the DT blogs I'm on - I am sorry.
