Venturing into colour...

Hello friends

Today's card is definitely not Christmas! 
I'm returning to flowers and pretty paper.
I've chosen to step outside my comfort zone a little and use some
different colours, I have lots of coloured card that is begging to be used and
I keep picking the white and ivory.

So here is Tiara Rondelle cut from green.
 


I mirrored it with some gold foil card (I'm not getting out of that habit anytime soon!)
The papers are Anna Griffin.
The flowers are Blooming Rose, this die set has become a fixture on my craft desk.

To see how it all came together I've made a YouTube video,
please click on the link below and press the YouTube logo for larger viewing.

And a project of mine would not be complete without a pet 
getting involved.  This is Pixel looking rather unsure of the card colouring.

Take care friends and please visit the blog tomorrow as it is the first
Sunday in the month and that means...Charity Kit Day.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Another beautiful card Christine. I love the Anna Griffin papers you use, but I can’t find where to get them from. Are there stockists in the uk? Jeanx

Very pretty I’ve missed a few posts and have enjoyed scrolling through what I have missed Blogger is really playing me up on some sites!
I really like how you’ve framed what primarily is a piece of backing paper This die is beautifully delicate and intricate
