Two colours at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all

oooo - I've had such blogger problems - just about tearing my hair out trying to get this post to post - well its either blogger or my laptop - either way I couldn't do what I wanted - and I'm never happy if I can't get my own way - just ask my DH lol!!

But if you're reading this I finally got there so the tantrum will be over

Its time for a new challenge over at 

and the theme is

Use only two colours
(includes shades of those colours and not hair or skin)

I have to say this is not my most favourite theme ever - but well we can't like them all.  For some reason my brain just couldn't get it together on this one.  I eventually came up with this card - and even then I can't decide whether I like it or not -  but it has grown on me!  I went to TPS store in search of inspiration and found this image which was a pre- coloured one - in shades of reds/pinks and brown/beige - and took it from there.

The image is called My Little Spoiled and is available here
I can certainly say that this image was the inspiration to make this card as I was clueless until I found it
- no change there then lol.

I decided to go with a sort of shabby chic theme as those colours seemed to fit

As always there are fab prizes up for grabs at The Paper Shelter

The gift voucher

Here's what I did...

Image - My little spoiled from The Paper Shelter (precoloured)
Papers - MME - lost and found
Sentiment labels - LOTV
Shaped card - from a ikt I can't remember buying!
Mounting for image - spellbinders labels 10
Butterfly die cut - whimsy stamps
Heart sticks dies and Flower dies  impression obsession at MCH
Pearls and ribbon form my stash
Distress ink - my favourite TH tea dye
