Colour Create

This must have been one of the quickest cards I've made for a long time!It's for this week's Colour Create challenge where the card has to be all white except for the image which can be coloured.
To compensate for the lack of colour I decided to make the front a little different and made a box card,cutting the "window" out with a Nesties scallop shape.
I drew the roses and coloured them as brightly as possible!
The rest is pretty straightforward - Woodware flower and leaf punches with some ribbon and pearls.
I love the shape of the card and I'm sure I'll be making more of these.....


  1. Wow! This is truly beautiful Ruth..... I love the card shape and the way you've outlined the nestie cut out with leaves, sooooo pretty! And your roses are fabulous, what a stunning creation!!
