A winner, sad news and two challenges!

Hi everybody!

Yet again an other weekend is over but I am afraid this isn't the only sad news I was talking about in this blog title...
After 10 weeks of inspiration I decided to stop my weekly colour combination.
My heart isn't into it anymore and I don't think that they were challenging me enough as they were colours I found stricking anyway... I might put one or two now and again in the future but not on a regular basis anymore...
I wanted to thank hugely Hanna and Jenny for their participations since week one. This will not be forgoten!
And by the way, after a draw, Jenny your name come up for the prize so please if you could give me your details...

My stopping my colour combination doesn't mean that I am stopping challenging myself and I decided to enter more often other blogs fun.
This week I have merged the CAS-ual fridays challenge and the LIS challenge
which were respectivly "Bring the bling" and "Butterflies" all for a clean and simple card.
Here is the result:


After reading the LIS challenge I new straight away that I would organise my butterflies that way and that I would put some bling on them. It just happened that it would fullfill the CAS challenge as well!
After laying my butterflies on my card I knew it needed "something" to contain them and I opted for an embossed frame made with a Spellbinder die.
I love the final result!

Here are a few close-up:



I hope you like it too!
Thank you for your visit and all your lovely comments!

Hi Emilie, I'm sad to see the colour combination go, I've loved the challenge and have created some layouts I am incredibly pleased with and used colours I wouldn't have necessarily put together if it wasn't for your challenge, so thank you. However, I know you will love LIM and CAS-ual friday's, Mum does, that's for sure. Gorgeous card combining the two, I've taken part this week and have combined the two challenges as well, they go great together. I shall be posting my entry later this week, need to carry on with revision at the moment. :) Hannah xx
