Blue, aqua and terracotta ..... sounds like a summer holiday ...

This inspirational photo reminds me of summer holidays in Italy .... oh well, we can but dream .... it's the theme for the July Colour Challenge No 21 over at the Ribbon Girls blog -


There are two prizes up for grabs, a £10 voucher for the Lili of the Valley online store generously given by Lisa and Laila, and an Aqua Mini Ribbon Kit from the Ribbon Girl.  

I chose Tilda to colour with  distress markers and added blue pleated organza ribbon topped with aqua 25mm satin; a small plain pumpkin colour button and 5mm self adhesive pearls

My flower spray consists of a white mulberry daisy, white carnation, three blue pretty blossoms and one white satin daisy with a diamante centre.  You can just see an aqua pin at the back of the flowers.  I made greenery with my MS leaf and frond punch then cut a Magnolia leaf swirl and the fancy rectangle on the Sizzix and lastly added loads of Stardust Stickles - I do like a bit of sparkle!
Ribbon, pearls, flowers, Stickles are all available from here

and by the way, have you seen the gorgeous new sparkly things in the store? I love them, and to celebrate having a new facebook page, we've got not one but two sparkly give aways so don't miss them!! Pop over to the Ribbon Girl blog for info
See you soon, Mary G x
