Colour Inspiration Challenge #30

Well I am up and crawling - I hope to start blogging regularly now that we have finally moved and are settled in Levin. I have decided to start my blogging again using the fabulous Colour Inspiration challenges from the uber talented Kristina Werner. These are a fabulous way to get your creative juices flowing, this weeks challenge is:

The inspiration image is so soothing and calm I just had to play along, this is the first time I have tried the challenge and actually linked my card.

This is the card I came up with - a misty melancholy scene using Lovely as a Tree on the sunniest day we have had for ages - go figure! I think it works really well with the missing you sentiment from So Many Sayings, and sort of describes how I am feeling at the moment having moved cities and not having my friends close by.

My husband took one look at it and said it was nice to see me make a masculine card, but I would have to take the sentiment off it - he gets to go to work and socialise! LOL.

Thanks for looking and have a great day :-)
