Simon Says Colour Combo for you ! ! :-)

First of all a big thankyou to everyone who entered our challenge for such a good cause last week. I am sure the children will be thrilled to recieve all your cards. Don't forget the Daring Cardmakers Challene have the same 'Make a Child Smile/Post Pals theme so you still have time to make cards for their challenge. Also we hope that you will continue to make cards in the future :-) Don't forget !! :-)

With the fab weather throughout europe thoughts turn to lovely BBQ's and summer fruit salad with dollops of vanilla ice cream ,,, Yummy !! I know there are thunder storms but they'll pass and the sun will shine :-) Don't forget to use sun screens and shadebathe, not sunbathe !!! :-)

This is the inspirational picture we have used for our inspiration. The colours are watermelon pink, orange, lemon and kiwi :-) As long as you use at least 2 of these colours thats fine but you could try to get all 4 colours on your creation :-)

For my card I used the yummy Simon Says Clear Stamps SAVOR SWEET CUPCAKES Exclusive

I love to use glitter and ivory flower soft (shredded coconut) for the topping :-)

The image was coloured with copics and 3D'd onto oval nesties, I used black/lemon black magic coedination for the scalloped nestie. i also used lemon pigment ink and sparkle emboss around the edge of the inner nestie.
The lemon background paper is a download from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts 'It's so Distressing'. I also used some basic grey design paper, I think thats from the lime rickey pad and some orange whitewash cordinations that I embossed with the swirls folder. I also added some prisma flowers :-0

The sentiment is from the same cupcake set :-)

I followed the fabulous sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge :-)

The DT have made some very yummy creations for you and as an extra bonus we have Simon says Stamp Brand Designer Bev in our designer Spotlight this week so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see everyone's fabby creations and please don't forget to leave everyone a comment, we really do appreciate them.

Ooh I almost forgot every week Heidi sponsors the challenge with a $25 shopping trip to the Simon Says Stamp store. :-) So what are you waiting for !! Get your colour box out !!! :-)
