ESAD Challenge

I am a member of the ESAD (Extremely Special Australian Demonstrators) Yahoo group and I am ashamed to say I am a bit of a lurker.

BUT.... my New Year's resolutions were to overhaul my blog (in the process) contribute more to the group, to enter the challenges and to be more organised. Well I am ticking 2 of those off (group and challenges), I can't say I am more organised as this is a last minute entry, but at least it's there!

The lovely Leonie set us challenge to make a card, 3D item or scrap page using the following colours.

And here is what I came up with:

These colours are a little out of my comfort zone which is good as I would never normally have put them together.

The decorative scallop border is something I cased from Gretchen Barron, I love to find new tricks to do with our punches, the flower is made by crumpling up scallop layers and then adding a button, the leaves are from the 5-petal punch and the words are from the Echoes of Kindness Level 2 hostess set.
