C4C357 A Colour Challenge

Good morning friends

It's Saturday  so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our October 2016 hostess is Caz Counsell and our Guest Designer is Heidi Green - The Crafty Goat Girl

Caz's challenge is:  "Colour wheel mix up... find your favourite 2 colours on the wheel and use the 2 colours on the opposite side of the wheel …. this will challenge you to maybe use colours you would usually shy away from."

Given the choice, my favourite colours to work with would be blue and green. The opposite colours are pink and orange. I was going to use pink and orange card stocks to make my card, but found this patterned paper looking for something else and ... well, there was enough pink and orange on it to grab my attention.

I used the Rectangle Pull Card by Karen Burniston to create a 5 x 7" Pull card. There is lots of added glitter glue and this card is quite sparkly in real life.

When you pull the sides, the card opens and the cupcake spins up. The Rectangle Pull Card comes with this optional spinner and it's great for animating all kinds of things.

I used Joset's sweet cupcake die and added lots of glitter to that too!

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C357.
