Scrapbook Sisters - Two Colour Challenge


Disaster Annie here...  honestly I'm a one woman disaster zone this week!  Yesterday I told you about my PC packing up, and now I can add the car to the list.  First up I get a flat tyre.  Luckily we are still waiting to send another one back (yep, we are a 4 car family at the moment - but that is going in the next week or so, so it doesn't count!) Then the thing won't start.  Turns out a mouse had made the engine bay it's home.  And got hungry.  And nibbled.  The mouse is no more as it fried itself (ewww...) but in so doing has knackered the electrics.  Oh joy... all I ever wanted for Christmas was to have the car re-wired... seriously no crafty stuff was on my list, car re-wiring all the way!!  

Humf... hopefully I've been good enough all year and Santa will still get me the odd crafty thing :-D

Never mind, enough moaning already, and onto todays card!

This week at Scrapbook Sisters the challenge is to use only

Hmm... well my card uses Red and Green... and a touch of white... but white isn't a colour right!

Here it is

I used one of the images I won from Saturated Canary (isn't she cool!!) to make a Christmas card for my friends nearly-teenage daughter.

I really like how this image coloured up for a first time colour I think she looks OK, and that she is quite funky but not too much for a young lady (if you know what I mean!).  The papers are ones I found in my drawer by Adornit - and I think they work really well with this image 

Please may I enter these challenges
