Everything Eleanor card and colour challenge

Hi all! I was in a colour challenge use Basic Gray, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit. I would never have considered these colours together! So I pulled out Everything Eleanor and created this card:

It's a simple card, but I really like it!
So what colour combinations have you come up with? Sometimes we think colours won't go well together, but by playing around with them we find out new and interesting combinations!

Chalkborad Technique and Tutorial

One of the cool techniques I taught at my technique class was the Chalkboard technique. It is super easy and so fun! It requires Basic Black card stock, Whisper White craft ink, an embossing buddy, a sponge and a stamp set...lined images work best.

1-cut your basic black card stock at 5" by 3 3/4"
2-take your embossing buddy and smack it on the card will generate powder. Shake off excess.
3-stamp your images in white craft ink.
4-take your sponge, dab it in the white ink, and lightly sponge around some of your images, and near the corners. Not too much!
5-adhere your black card stock to a mat measuring 5 1/2" by 4"
6-adhere mat to card base.

I chose to add pop up flowers and a sentiment to my card. Get creative! This technique is so fun!
I used the stamp set Raining Flowers (# 122765) and the sentiment from Made For You (#126342)

Scrapbook pages

First, sorry for my absence. The abandoned cat we decided to keep on New Year's eve had 7 kittens last week! Also, my BunBun went into stasis, so we had some emergency vet visits to deal with.  Supplementing kitten feeding, and medicating and hand feeding the BunBun take up a lot of time! :0
Here are the pages:

I used the Storytime designer paper (#126907) and the co-ordinating stamp set, Storybook Friends (#126737) for both pages.
And just for your cuteness quota, here are some kittens:
They are getting big! Their eyes are not yet open; they are a week old as of last night.
Have a great Monday!
