Makeesha Byl colour challenge


Ok, I am so in love with the Big Deal Alphabet set at the moment! I love using it for a bold funky look! So I decided to use it for Makeesha Byl's colour challenge.

Here are the colours:

I don't have any Purely Pomegranate so I used Rose Red instead. My creation is ultra long and therefore hard to photograph... but here it is...

I hope you like it!! It's hard to see all the detail and dimention of the card in this photo. I have raised the "h" & "k" with dimentionals and the whole "thanks" panel is also raised up with dimentionals. I have also slightly curled the petals of the flower. I'm quite happy with how it turned out! I like the shape of the card. :)

See ya next time! :)
