Truly Scrumptious!

Ok it's not the best photo in the world - I will take another tomorrow. (I have now added a better photo!) You see I meant to take the photo today while the sun was still up but I forgot and so rather than leave it yet another day before I posted my card on my blog and into the Truly Scrumptious challenge I thought I'd take a badly lit photo and then update it tomorrow when I have taken a better one.

So this weeks challenge is a sketch with the added extra of using the colours pink, green and black. Now they are not a colour combination I would normally go for but then that's the whole idea of a challenge isn't it - to take you out of your comfort zone and challenge you?!

So I raided my 6 by 6 paper stash as I remembered I had some papers in there that would fit the colour combo really nicely and this is the card I came up with.
I love the little bird on this card. It's by Imaginisce and cost 99p. It's so simple which makes it great for paper piecing and I just love the flower on its bum! I think the papers I used are by Dovecraft but I'm not sure, please correct me if I'm wrong! The squares and circles are all done using Nestabilities in my Cuttlebug and the flowers are mainly Primas.
