Two challenges, one card...and some candy!

Ok, so I feel like I'm cheating a bit here...but I ran out of time today, and so I have combined Kristina's Colour Challenge, and the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.

These are Kristina's colours for the week:


And here is the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge:


For my card I have used Kristina's colours, while the theme is (quite obviously I hope) from The Sound of Music:



The base cardstock is Whisper White, the background cardstock is textured Bashful Blue, the far Alps are Sage Shadow and the near hills are Certainly Celery. The small white flowers (aka Edelweiss) are from the Love Birds Rub-Ons. The Pale and Perfect Plum flowers are punched using the Spring Flower Bouquet punch and have beautiful Dew Droplets in Pearl as their centres. The moon is Whisper White cardstock and the sentiment is from the Cherished Memories Rub-Ons.

A little more about the Dew Droplets:


I got these from The Little Online Card Shop. They are by The Robin's Nest and the colours above are: Bird of Paradise, Daffodil, Hardy Ivy and Pearl (there are heaps more colours to choose from...but I stopped at four).

I am going to offer a little blog candy here. The winner will receive 20 of each of the fours colours of Dew Droplets shown above. I'm also going to add some buttons and ribbons to the candy, but I don't have photos of those...so they'll be a surprise :-).

All you need to do is leave a comment against this post, and I will use Random.org to draw a post number (I don't think Blogger numbers the posts, but I will just count from the top). This Blog Candy offering is open to anyone at all, in Oz or O/S, and entries will close at 7pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time, Sunday 14th December. If you don't have a google login where I can find your email, please leave email address in your comment, it will allow me to contact you to let you know if you've won!

Thanks for stopping by,
Sam.

PS. Thanks for all your messages and well-wishes, I am feeling much, much better!

What an awesome card!!! I thought about doing the hills, too, but didn't. Of course, even if I had it wouldn't have been as cool as yours!!!

Ramona Michaluk said...

Love this card Sam - something a little different. Love the way you've created the mountains with the pretty flowers in front to make a scenic card. Very effective!

Sankari W. said...

HiSam,

I couldn't resist the dew droplets - they look great combined with the punched flowers and the rub ons it gives the card some real depth to the layers.
