Phindy's Challenge - favorite colour

Hi, folks and happy Friday to you all!

Phindy's Place group at PCP has now over 1000 members and THE CELEBRATIONS START TODAY!! There's loads of contests, activities, even a treasure hunt and believe me, the prizes are FAB!!! Believe me, you'd be wise to head over and join the fun - maybe you can combine some of the competitions with Phindys Challenge too!!

This week at Phindy's Challenge the theme is Your Favorite Colour. Thing is, I don't really HAVE a favorite colour, at least consciously not. I like a lot of colours and certain shades but I can not say that, for example, blue is my favorite.

What I did instead is that I picked out one of my favored colour combos - teal/turquoise and deep golden yellow with deep cream/kraft.


I really like that image - just imagine how hard it would be to blow your nose if it had to travel the whole length of a trunk!!! lol To make it as co-ordinated as possible, I paper pieced a lot and let the papers do most of the work. Not much embellishing going on - just didn't want to cover too much. Besides, I had at least an ambition that this could be unisex card.

The papers, btw, are Cosmo Cricket Togetherness and it's one of those pads I love TOO much, which means that I have to make myself to use it. Otherwise I'd just "save" it! lol

I also rediscovered my forgotten Fiskars Threading Water border punch - it's so lovely and versatile in it's simplicity!!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Stampin' Royalty - ribbons
Wild Flower Patch - twine
Sweet Stampin - ribbon
Papertake Weekly - sketch

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs
