Colour Create week 17, Charisma Cardz #20

Hello folks, I hope today finds you well.
I started working on this card yesterday,
finished it up today and am happy to get to posting!!
This weeks colour combo at
The Colour Create Challenge Blog
is Lemon, Pink Sorbet and Chocolate.
Mmmmmmm, mention food and I am there!!!
There was an extra option to go for a
shabby chic look with our creations. Will do.

I also decided to incorporate into this project
this weeks challenge over at
Charisma Cardz Thursday Craft Challenges
which is to use flowers, lace and pearls in our creation.
Oh, I think I'm in love...
This will be my first time playing with Charisma Cardz
and I am excited to hop around and visit.
Additionally, their challenge this week is brought to us
by their DT Sally, whose hosting her first challenge,
so here we have 2 firsts and I am thrilled to participate.

I spent more time thinking of what I should do than doing it.
This is very well thought out. Now execution, well, it's okay,
but I tried to include every bit of challenge into my card
and went as shabby chic as my image selection would allow.
The end result, I like it.

I hope everyone managed to enjoy their day,
and hopefully squeezed in a little crafting time.
My youngster can smell a holiday from a mile away
and always elects NOT to nap,
making for a most miserable evening.
This evening proved true to form,
but despite my wrestless tot and eager stepdaughters,
I finished the project, along with the lovely
extra work load holidays bring us moms.

Off to bed I head. Until next time,
