Creative Inspirations deliciously sweet colour challenge

Hello to all of you,
it seems like a long time has past since I posted a card, but I am back, as it is time for a new challenge over at Creative Inspirations, it's a colour challenge of Chocolate and Mint. Now, being an ice cream enthusiast, I immediately thought, mint'n'chip ice cream, oh how yummy you are, but what about those delish girl scout cookies, those are pretty delightful too!! And oh my gosh, Land'O'Lakes chocolate mint cocoa, sooooooooo goooooooood....

For one reason or another, uploading my photos onto blogger turns them cool in tone, IRL, this is much more vivid, I'd upload to Photobucket but my computers security system WILL NOT let me navigate to that site!! Well now, this is a TGF image from a set created by Marina Neira called Sweet Tooth, coloured in pencils with a touch of white highlighter pen and crystal lacquer over the glass and their eyes. Papers are Basic Grey, I think the white flower is Bazzil?? Brads, lace and ribbon are all store-brand stuff from local craft stores.

So I get to enter some challenges this week, hot dog!!
Basic Grey is hosting a gingham challenge,
sketch from Double Dutch LOVED THIS!!!
PaperTake Weekly is hosting a cutie patootie challenge,
at ABC Challenges y is for you and me,
and I think that is all, but I can not lie, I got giddy seeing this!! The card fits perfectly for each challenge, something I am admittedly slacking on lately.

Well, I hope to see lots of you come over and join us at Creative Inspirations this week, I will see you guys a little later on this week with another creation :) Blogger has been a little kinder to me lately, so slowly but surely, I am making my bloghopping rounds, if you haven't gotten your regular waffles from me lately, I'ma comin', I'ma comin', like The Little Engine That Could!!

Hugs, Stephanne

As soon as I saw it I thought of mint choc chip ice cream - which I think suggests a one track mind....A wonderful card with a fab combination of elements to go with that gorgeous image - great colouring! Cheers Claire x
