CCG #236 is Live!

Color Combo's Galore Challenge #236 is 'IN THE NAVY'
Something gorgeous, bold and a just a little bit trendy:

Had lots of fun with with this and loved where the inspiration took me with

'Sometimes I get carried away' 
...well, don't we all from time to time.  It's good to smile and laugh out loud.
O.K so this color palette screamed Glitz Designs 'Yours Truly' with a touch more of the navy from Glitz 'Love You Madly'.
I took inspiration from Photo #1 with the Focus on Trend - Banners.  I **heart** banners and just a few of my pojects will include these sweet embellishments.  Here I created a larger banner effect with coordinating papers which sits under the photo.  I included the lighter gray of the palette as a contrast to the bolder mustard and red and chevron and damask patterns of the papers.
 From photo 1, inspiration was also taken from the bottle label with the inclusion of an elephant - this one was a fussy cut image from one of the Glitz papers. From the banners, I also took inspiration from the alphabet letters and polka dot paper.  The background patterned paper has some large lettering and polka dots are seen on the gray patterned paper used in the creation of the banner.

Something a little 'tweet' with the Twiddleybitz chipboard birdie as inspired by the bird image in Photo #3 and the little funky Twiddleybitz birdcage, inspired by the birdcage element as seen in Photo #4.
From the wooden table also seen in Photo #4, I was also inspired to include some wooden clothespins which I colored red.
