   The theme for this week's challenge at Creative Corner is 'your favourite colour combination'. My grand daughters have always been 'pink' girls but I have always preferred blue so I often combine the two colours together.
   For this birthday card I began by matting and layering paper from Lili of the Valley's bonnets and bowties paper pad onto blue mirri and white card having first wrapped wide lace around the paper. The image is from the Lili of the Valley stamp 'Annabel - big kick'. This was coloured using Promarkers and then cut out using a Spellbinder oval die cutting around part of the football so that it fell outside the oval. I then matted it onto blue mirri card which had been cut out using a scalloped oval die.
   I coloured peel off birthday wishes and stuck this to the edge of a doily which had been coloured using Promarkers. This was then cut and folded and attached to the card tucking it under the image. I then attached three flowers from Wild Orchid and three pieces from a large flourish cut using a tattered lace die to the bottom right hand side of the card.
