Loving These Challenge Cards

Gosh I am loving these challenge cards.

This one is for A Spoonful of Sugar's challenge 49, blue and green.

I got some gorgeous DCWV stacks this week and the card has a sheet from the Blossoms & Butterflies stack cut in half and used as the base card. As soon as I saw it I thought, WOW, what a gorgeous blue/green combo. So when I spotted this challenge it called out to me!

Because the background itself is so patterned it didn't leave room for too much more embellishing. The silk flowers were from my stash, but dyed and the centres changed; and the other flower is a chipboard one sanded and repainted.

The butterfly is just a peel off over some starbust stained paper.

The image is from Rachelle Anne Miller's Lily and Milo collection and was coloured in with prismas and OMS. The brolly, boots and puddle all have judikins diamond glaze over the top, sadly not showing up here!

This has inspired me to use a lot more of this colour combination as it really has a wow factor, and to think my Mum used to say 'blue and green should never be seen'.



  1. Great card. Must admit I thought the same about the colour. I love it.

  2. I do like those dcwv papers The colours are lovely I wish I could be disciplined enough to get into challenges but the days all seem to run into each other and before I know it another weeks disappeared

  3. Very very very very pretty :)

  4. Fab card Looby, love the cute image and the papers and flowers co-ordinate beautifully.
