CC273 - Pear-y Sweet




Whoo hoo! I'm so doing the happy dance here! This is the first time in a very looooonnngg time that I actually got a chance to participate in an SCS Colour Challenge in forevah! In fact, I can't even remember the last one that I played in. So let me re-iterate...WHOO HOO! :D

The challenge was Cocoa Banana Gardens (Close to Cocoa, Barely Banana and Garden Green) and we were allowed to toss in a bit of Soft Sky as a "cherry on top" if we felt so inclined to do so. I wasn't actually in the card making mood tonight but I found the colour combo too cool to resist as I had never even used my Garden Green package of card stock up until now :)



I was looking for a quick and easy image to water colour and one that I could match with the colour challenge so I pulled out this ever so sweet MFT Feelin' Fruity set that I love ever so much and don't get a chance to use too often. I water coloured it with my tombow markers and water brush then cut it out and popped it up on my sponged background. This card only took me about an hour to make so that's and even bigger bonus :D

I used some scrap Basic Grey papers and decided to get a little wild and crazy and place my sweet little creation on top of a GREEN card base. Are you as shocked as I was? *giggle* I always use white, but this created such a nice, fun pop of colour that I couldn't resist the temptation :D
