Guest Design Team spot for Cute Card Thursday

Woo hoo!!! I was thrilled to be offered a 2 week GDT spot at Cute Card Thursday. Thursday is my day off, so I try and take part most Thursdays although I haven't done very well lately :-( , as my school report always used to say - needs to try harder....

The challenge this week is
'Strawberry Mint Julep' - use a pink and green colour combo.

These are not normally colours I would put together, although I'm not quite sure why.
I really enjoyed making this card, apart from when I lost the image. I stamped and coloured it at the weekend then it went AWOL - I'm sure Tilda had a little holiday as she reappeared on my desk on Tuesday evening. I used some Basic Grey paper which I've had for ages but didn't want to cut into, how sad am I?
I used glossy accents on the plate to give it a glazed effect, it looks very effective IRL, not managed to capture the effect very well in the photo.

Don't forget to check out the very talented design team members fantastic creations.
