A little hug for colour create...

Don't you just adore these new Leanne Ellis stamps?....I HAD to have them!!..... (along with a few others...LOL, and my wish list is still growing!!)
This one is my favourite I think.....
I made this card for the colour create challenge... which this week is asking for the colours sky blue, Tan and Ecru to be used.... gorgeous colour combo in my eyes...think this will be a popular one....
anyway... heres my take....

Blue and Green and Buttons Galore..

Hi all...
Hope you are all well??...
I've finally got some EZ mount and been able to play with my latest Sugar Nellies.... trouble is the new Leanne Ellis stamps have just slipped into my basket this now I NEED more!!!
Went for a rather grungy look on this card, cos I think it suits the gorjuss image.... I'm entering this for Colour create... just in time I think.... they want us to use Blue and Green this week...LOVE this colour combo!!...
And I've only used off cuts and scraps!!
This gorjuss stamp was a gift from an AMAZING know who you are...I LOVE you loads!! and the keyring is serving its purpose perfectly too!! xxx
Stamp~ Just a girl (Sugar Nellie)
Papers~Offcuts Shabby princess, DCWV,BG Boxer
Tabs~Nestabilities label one die
Dewdrops~ crafty notions
Ribbon~ stash
And YEP...the doodling is back!! doodled swirls and 'HI' sentiment...
Next up is my entry for This weeks 'Spoonful of Sugar'... for which we are asked to use BUTTONS.... Now I actually am ashamed to say that I 'found' these buttons in a bag of crafty goodies that I had forgotten I bought!! I had just put the bag straight into my craft cupboard 'as is!' I also found rafia, coloured staples (which I've used on a card to be shown later) and a load of lace... How bad is it that I bought stuff and neglected it like that???
anyway here is my entry.... again using up off cuts...
