A Little Saying!

Tuesday again and a new Color Challenge at the Outlawz. This week's picture and twist have been chosen by Penny

aren't they just gorgeous colours and the twist is to add distressing, so you can all get your creative juices flowing!

For my card I have used an image from Nana Vic. I've been dying to use this image but just couldn't get the right sentiment for it, then - bingo! We were walking around Ludlow on Bank Holiday Monday and I spotted a sign that said 'Life is not about sheltering from the storm, It's about learning to dance in the rain!' and I thought yes, perfect and made DH repeat it until we got back to the car and I could write it down, lol!

So here's my card:

So I used some lush blue handmade paper as a base, the paisley pattern is embossed onto it, great texture. I then added some mulberry paper that I found on a stall in Stratford upon Avon, it was cream but I inked and distressed it. I added the image from Nana Vic, coloured with Promarkers then added the computer generated sentiment!

I hope you will all come over to the Outlawz and join us in this challenge, gorgeous colours and great twist! Hope to see you there!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
