Happy Mother's Day - Colour Challenge Global Design Project #gdp033 & #tgifc52


Today I have for you my creation for the Global Design Project 'Colour Challenge' #gdp033 and TGIF Challenges 'Mothers Day' #tgifc52. 'Happy 1st Birthday TGIF!!!' And what a gorgeous trio of colours the GDP Designer Team have for us!


I enjoy a Colour Challenge, and I am extra happy when there is a Neutral in the mix. Although these colours are quite masculine, I have Challenged myself to make Mothers' Day cards using this weeks colours. 
We celebrate Mother's Day in Australia Sunday 8th May, so I will have plenty of time to create and post my finished cards.
My creations... Using the 'Circle of Spring' stampset.
I also made a matching 'Curvy Keepsake Gift Box'. To create my own background, I stamped the flower image using 'Sahara Sand Inkpad' all over the 'Sahara Sand & Very Vanilla' cardstock after die cutting. 

A close up of the Curvy Keepsake Gift Box. I really love how the tiny flower tag turned out! It's the cutest!!!

The wreath has been embossed using gold embossing powder. Such beautiful detail on the Sahara Sand cardstock. I splattered 'Gold Wink of Stella' over the card adding some extra sparkle.

The 'Sahara Sand Lace Trim' & 'Calyspo Coral Seam Binding Ribbon' (soon to be retired and on 'Low Inventory') look pretty together. The sentiment is stamped in 'Night of Navy' and is surrounded by watercolour flowers. And not forgetting the added bling of the 'Gold Glimmer' to the centre of the flowers.

Thankyou for being here. I truly appreciate you reading this far, and most of all I hope to have inspired you to create your own Mother's Day cards, or Birthday cards or whatever the Occasion cards. There is plenty of time to join in on these fun Challenge, and you can click here for all the details for the GDP Colour Challenge, and here for the TGIF Mother's Day Challenge.
Happy days are creative days. D x

  1. I adore just the hint of Night of Navy you have used in your projects Denita. You have totally achieved the feminine look with this colour scheme that you were after. I hope you have some lovely chocolates for the Curvy keepsake box. Your Mum will flip! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project.

  2. Two fabulous creations Denita. The gold embossing on the Sahara Sand is just stunning and I love the gold splatters from the Wink of Stella. The Calypso Coral Seam Binding under the Sahara Sand lace is a beautiful touch and I love the little flowers that finish off a pretty card. Thanks for playing along this week at TGIF Challenges.
