A Spoonful of Sugar – # 49 – Colour scheme – blue and green.

Happy Tuesday one and all and hello to a new challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar. It’s a nice, simple one this week – create something using the colour scheme blue and green. I must have had this Doodlebug paper in my stash for YEARS but I thought of it as soon as I saw this challenge. It is my nephew’s 2nd birthday on bank holiday Monday so this is what I created for him. Although it’s quite plain I’m actually rather pleased with how it turned out. The boat is from the New Arrivals cricut cartridge cut in layers and embossed. The number 2 is done using Plantin Schoolbook.

It was my choice of Guest Design Team member this week too and I picked the fabulously talented and ever-so-special Steph. Her card is just so beautiful as are all of the other DT’s. Hope you get the chance to pop over and have a look and join in the challenge too. Our prize this week has been generously donated by Helene at Alota Rubber Stamps.
