Cupcake Creation Colour Challenge CR84FN8 & Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #28

I quite often pop over to Mona Pendleton's blog Cupcake's Creations as she is a great inspiration and I love her style. Every week Mona does a colour challenge and I always think I must give it go,so today I got to make my first card for this great colour challenge.
Here is this weeks inspiration photo,CR84FN8:


I also used sketch #28 from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge .


 I've seen a lot of tent cards lately,so I thought I'd have a go at making one. There's a great tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers on how to make a tent card.Here's my first go at one but I'm sure it won't be the last as I really enjoyed creating it. The papers are October Afternoon and Little Yellow Bicycle,I used Nesties to cut out the circle and scalloped frame.I stamped the Waltzingmouse stamp in SU Melon Mambo and the flower is made using Melon Mambo card stock.




Here's a side view:



Thanks for stopping by,I'm of to the local pub now for Carols Around The Piano,we always have a great time singing all those popular carols with other familys and a drop of mulled wine.
