TGF Royal Battle!

The Greeting Farm are holding their biggest challenge yet!

There is around 60 teams who will submit one card each week, using a set theme/colour scheme set by TGF. You have to vote for your top 3 cards, and the teams with the most votes will move on to the next weeks challenge!
(Tough stuff!)

I am on team Little Star Shooters!
Along with Kim (Team Captain)
and Laura.

We had to submit a retro card this week using a certain colour scheme, turquoise and burnt orange/brown.

Laura had a great idea that we all make a card each and then send them to each other and then decide who's card to send in. This makes it fairer, (and we all get to do a bit more crafting!)

This week, my card was submitted (eek!) ...

When I thought 'retro', I thought of the 50s - diners and ice cream parlours, so that's what I went for! I have made an easel card so I could get lots of detail into the card, to prop the card up I made a Sundaes sign.

I have used the orangey/brown paper to make the counter, and sat an ice cream on top of it. The ice cream was made using a Sizzix die, and to top it off I added the cherry brad.

I have used TGFs Wildsprout Megan, and gave her a pleated skirt out of turquoise polka dot paper, and also gave her a red bow from ribbon.

If you would like to vote for us and have a nosey and the other great entries, just head over to TGF. Click HERE if you like our card and want to vote for it! Thankyou!
