Allsorts challenge 440 - Blue and Brown

Good Morning, Wendy is in charge of this weeks challenge at Allsorts and she has chosen the theme of Blue and Brown only, but you can stamp in black.

Our Sponsor for this week is Digi Stamp Boutique.

Here are my cards

As I quite liked this colour combo I did another using more of a lighter brown for the backing and a brighter blue

SU label punch.
C.C. Designs stamp - Columbine
Sizzex die for the cut outs and some gems and paper from ages ago. Thought it was about time I tried them out.
The backing on the first card does appear to be black but it is dark brown could not colour the leaves in a darker brown as it did not show the details of the leaves.
I stamped the image twice and then paper pieced the flowers, it does not show on the photo.

Well we had our bonfire and fireworks Friday night so that is over for another year.
Please do pop over to the challenge Blog to see the lovely creations by the rest of the Team.
Have a super week and thanks so much for popping by.

It's a colour palette I enjoy as well Kath and very much like both of your takes on the theme.

If your weather is like the Fens today where it's been pouring since 5am, it's just as well you had fireworks last night.
