Eeeeek Pink & Lime!

Morning everyone I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Sorry I am a little late with my post, but late is better than nothing at all!

Our challenge at Magnolia Down Under for you this week is Pink & Lime....Well if you are like me it would scare you off! I did struggle with this challenge, my card for you today is my second attempt, but I have to say I am so glad I did not pike and tried again as I just love how the colours turned out together. I think my problem was in my first card was my papers so after changing them and the completely everything else with my card I came up with one that I really like. I know it is not often that I really like a card I make and I am sure if I look closely I will see lots of flaws but I am keeping my blinders on and ignoring that, LOL!

I suppose I better stop waffling along and actually who you my card!

I used acetate as my case and then the cheesecloth as my next layer. Then came the main layer with the pretty papers (that I have had in my stash for a very long time). You can see that it is also a shaker card.   I think the thing that really sealed the deal for me was the gorgeous corner chippies from Make it Crafty, just added that extra element I was after without being over the top! I think this card will make a perfect birthday card for one of Lizzie's friends or even one of my friends.

I experimented with colouring the ocean around Tilda....I used lots of swirls, squiggling lines and sort f blending them all together to soften them. 

Now before I go I just want to say that you really need to go check out all the gorgeous creations on offer at the blog. So many of us struggled with this theme this week that I think the "challenge" has been really good us and the results speak for themselves. 

Its been a long time since I entered so challenges so I thought I would. Here is what I am going to enter these into:
