Colour Create #4 (already!) Where have the weeks gone to?

I can't believe that this is the fourth challenge from Colour Create already. I really must be getting old, the time is simply flying by.

This card just doesn't quite work somehow, I think that maybe the ribbon is just a little de trop... wrong sort, wrong place, wrong finishing... something isn't just quite right, but never mind. I may take off the brad and just do a simple knot. It was a pleasant way to spend some time on a Sunday morning before I start on preparations for lunch!

The parameters were grey and pink and hopefully something cuddly. Check, check and check!

This lovely Ted is from PSX, the flowers are Sizzix, the paper is Paper Cellar Ltd, the other bits and bobs are out of my bits and bobs drawer.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

I think that this is better... do you agree?

  7. That's a real sweetie of a card Chrissie. Both versions are nice, but I think I tend to favour the second ribbon. Love the papers. Thanks for joining us at the Colour Create Challenge.

  8. aww what a gorgeous card, luv the colours, cute image, sue.x

  9. I have been brousing your blog
    (found via a friend) and your cards are amazing. I love them


  10. Chrissie it's gorgeous. Love the papers and image you've chosen and yes I think the second ribbon is better.
    Thanks for joining in - hugs Heather xx

  11. Well I think this works beautifully Chrissie, those flowers look lovely and the bear is very cute and cuddly! xx

  12. Oh fiddle, I posted my comment on teddy on the wrong post. See it on
    Penny Black's posting. Love that

  13. Yup, I agree the second photo with the ribbon is better. Isn't it good when you can change things round. That is the glory of making your own. I'm not sure of the colour combo, I have seen some others, and I'm just not sure. I like your card but it's the grey. I think that is too far outside my box (I like colour combo challenges though, they make one think).

  14. Lovely card Chrissie :-) Yup I agree with you the 2nd one looks better :-)
    Cute image and the papers are gorgeous too !

  15. Super - I would have been happy with either version! Juliexx

  16. Really lovely card Chrissie, I love the diamond design on your backing paper, and the teddy is a real cutey! Love it,
    Sarita xx
