Very proud!

One of my rituals on a Friday is to check the different challenge blog to know what I will be creating at the weekend. It usually give me a full day of brainstorming so that I have an idea of what I will do when I enter my den. It was with amazement that I discovered I had been picked as a VIP for the CAS-ual Friday challenge of last week for this card



 AND I had been picked as a showcase for the Less Is More challenge for this card.




 It was such a surprise as so many entries for both challenges were so gorgeous, I never dreamt in a million years I would be picked. Of course thinking this might be my lucky day I played the Euromillion but my chance didn't last long enough and I didn't win the £46 millions... Maybe next time...

During my search for a challenge to keep me out of trouble this weekend I came across the Play Date Cafe blog with its colour combination. I decided to take part and created a card following this colour combo:


Here is my take on it:


I do like the result although the colours are very pale compare to what I have been creating lately. This is one of the great thing about challenges: they take you out of your comfort zone. All the stamps used are from Waltzing Mouse. I hope this inspired you!
