Purely Pretty Banana....

...or something like that! Actually, this is for a colour challenge set by the fabulous Alisa, to use Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink and Barely Banana. I guess it's not really a challenge if it's easy right?
I used sketch 3 from Laura at http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com/, these girls are super talented and come up with the most amazing stuff! I love their sketches.

I really loved the Pomegranate and Pink together, I think they look awesome...but the Banana was definitely a challenge! Anyway, I've used the So Swirly Wheel in Pomegranate ink for the BG on the Pink card base, the Cherish sentiment from 'Warm Words' on the Pomegranate piece in Basic Black ink and some double stitched Pomegranate ribbon. The Banana piece has been scalloped with the slit punch.

I'm still not sure that I really like it...well the Banana bit anyway...and so I think I might make the same card again, but with a different colour down the side....maybe Celery or Sage Shadow...I'll have to see what looks good.

That's all for now....I'm waiting on my order of goodies from the new mini catalogue which becomes available to the public on the 1st of August....one of the benefits of being a demo is that you get to order early...just in time for birthday presents for ME!!! YAY!!!

I plan to have a big play day on Thursday if my stuff is here....so watch out for some sneak peaks of the lovely goodies from the new catty....there might even be something nice with birdies on it...

Have a great day

I love that wheel you used; great pattern. So pretty :) I'm not sure about the banana either...I love Barely Banana in general (I own a whole ream of it) but not so much with the pomegranate (which I also love!) Maybe next time if you used white cs for the strip across, and pomegranate for the scalloped piece and faux stitch the scallops with your white gel pen to coordinate with the white stitches on the ribbon? Just a thought...
