Colour Create - Brown and Blue

I thought oh brown and blue just right for a male card, then there was the extra option of adding lace and pearls, to a man's card???? Here's what I created for the Colour Create challenge:

I found the image first (Forever Friends clear sticker) and the patterned paper, most of it is Doodlebug but the brown paper is by Daisy Bucket. I then had to think through the lace and came up with the idea of dying the lace a dark blue colour (using Blue Iris colorbok chalk queue - so messy!!!) as I didn't have any blue lace. I thought the round circles on the lace could be wheels :} I used a rub on sentiment and then put a Kaiser champagne (browny colour) pearl on each end.

Hope you like it.

Well the lace and pearls on a man's card worked like a treat! This is fantastic for the men, Valerie. Well done! You even dyed your own lace - fab. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.

A fantastic card! I love the bear image and the paper and dyed lace look wonderful, I think it's very clever that you made the elements work so beautifully for a masculine card, brilliant work. Glad you could join in with the Colour Create challenge this week. Chris x
