Dream Valley Challenges DT Card - Favourite Colour Combo


And it's Monday again but no Monday Blues as I didn't have to get up for work today.  The schools are on mid term break so I've taken the time off to spend with Iona.  As I schedule this post I'm not sure what we'll be up to but just nice to spend some extra time together.

Ok so on to the new challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges, our theme this time is 'Favourite Colour Combo' and we would love to see what colours are your faves.  Our sponsor is Di's Digi Downloads.

It was so hard to pick a favourite as there are lots of combos that work well together for different things.  In the end I chose black and pink as I love the contrast between the light and dark and I think it works well for feminine cards.

I've used a Gorjuss image for my card, this one is called 'Little Heart'.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and then fussy cut it.  The papers are from 2 different Docrafts Capsule Collections and I've used a Spellbinders die to cut out the swatches for the patchwork effect.  The sentiment is by Pebbles Inc and I've kept it simple with just a couple of black gems to embellish.

Hope you all have a good week, whatever you have planned and thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at what I've been up to.
