Isabella Sketchbook Challenge - a Colour Scheme

It's Wednesday and that means there is another Isabella Sketchbook challenge for you to enter. I am so thrilled that the local SA girls are supporting Isabella's challenges.  You've made me very proud and I wish you all the best with the challenges. 

The challenge this week is... to make a card/project using as many colours as you like in the Isabella Sketchbook Challenge blog's header (see below).  You must agree, these are fabulous colours to work with and the DT and I can't wait to see what you come up with this week. 

As usual, please visit the Isabella Sketchbook blog to view the DT's creations which we hope will inspire you.  There are 2 free Isabella Sketchbook digi stamps up for grabs and the I WON Badge for you to display on your blog, if you are the winner... so what are you waiting for ?  Here's my submission for this week... Plain and simple, but the DP was so gorgeous, I didn't want to hide it.

Base of card: Black AC cardstock;  Lilac card matted onto the black cardstock. Lilac and White DP matted onto that. I've used the gorgeous Monique Ballerina from Isabella's range and coloured her with colours from the header. Other embellies: a shimmery multi-coloured organza ribbon, green organza rose, a few pearls and mini pearl hatpins. Sentiment: Simon Says Stamps.

I'll catch up with you later. Take care, hugs Sharon x

Love that little ballerina - great minds think alike:) This is so pretty and I love how you coloured her. The little hat pins are so pretty and combined with the little flower make this very feminine.

Hi Sharon,I love your card for Isabeela's this week they are really gorgeous colours. I agree with you, that paper is toooo nice to cover up. The ribbon is so swish and delish. I hope to join in again this week. Thank you for your comments they really make my day.
Love Cherie
