Ouch! I Fell out of my Comfort Zone.

I simply had to break away from the little books and what better way to do this than by getting involved in another blog challenge? The wonderful Lavinia Stamps are still in play - can't get away from them.  However, I have had to step well out of my usual colour tones for this challenge - Bright and Beautiful.

Sadly this photo does not show the true colours, nor the shimmer.  I can assure you that it is very bright.  If I get a moment I shall upload a better picture.

The background was made using Adirondak inks on water colour card and some Tattered Angels glimmer mist. I then stamped the little fairy 'shrooms and some teeny tiny 'shrooms at either side.  Mounted on a matt gold card then a bright teal piece, I finished it off with a bright teal and lilac coloured organza bow, some glitter brads and a word staple.

Of course it had to go on a brown craft card base - anything else would have been a bridge too far.

So go see the other entries at Lavinia Stamps blog, enter yourself if you like.  I look forward to seeing all the other entries myself and as always I look forward to getting your comments.
