...Dawn's favourites PTI challenge


I so need a light box - I can't seem to get a decent photo these days - even in the natural light!! Anyhow, the PTI challenge for today was that you got to pick a favourite colour combo as showcased by the lovely Dawn McVey on her blog and make a card with those colours - I picked the delicious Raspberry fizz, Dark chocolate and Vintage cream combo from one of her lovely creations and completely ordinarified it. For anyone not fluent in Englirish, I took something beautiful and made it ordinary - I didn't intend to, it's just a gift I have.

I can't tell you how unlike what I had planned, this card is. But it matters not - what does matter is that I got it done just in time to be in with a chance of winning a set of Dawn's magnificent Damask stamp set.

If you click on over to Nichole's you might just have time to squeeze in an entry yourself - have fun.
