Favourite Colours

Edited to add: In order to allow people to play along with all the fun activities that Phindy and the design team are hosting in the Phindy group at Paper Craft Planet, this challenge will run for two weeks so you have until midnight GMT, Thursday, November 4th to submit up to three entries.

This week our challenge to you at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog is to use one of your Phindy images and create a card in your favourite colour.  I have cheated a bit because I don't really have a favourite colour (I like so many) but I am a big fan of pairs of colours and purple and yellow is one combination that I really like.  I decided to follow this sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp and my only deviation is the addition of the sentiment.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Sunday Sketch and Stamp - Sketch
ABC Challenge - F is for Flowers
Wild Orchid - Pastels

Image:  Feel Better Soon (Phindy's Place)
Sentiment:  Create with TLC
Card Stock:  Purples (Recollections), Green (My Stash)
Papers:  Yellow (Provo Craft), Floral (Wild Rose Studio)
Colouring Medium: Pencil Crayons (Prismacolor) with OMS (Taltine)
Tools & Embellishments:  Chalk (Mungyo), Flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts), Frond Punch and Daisy Edge Punch (Martha Stewart), Pearl Stickers (Recollections), Glear Glaze Pen (Sakura)

  8. Awww what a sweet card, your take on the sketch is perfect.

  9. Yellow is one of my favorite colours too!! And I really like purple but for some reason are a bit wary of using it. Weird. I should do it more often - I just got some purples in Copic markers lately so there's really no excuse!!
