Sorry I'm late! Here's your FF Challenge #32

Oh dear! I have been to the hairdresser's and forgot to schedule my Fairy Fun Friday card before I went!
I wouldn't mind, but I made it WELL in advance. I'm useless!!!
OK, enough blabbering......... The challenge this week is to use this picture as your inspiration..........

Corrr! What wouldn't I give for a room THAT size!!!!

Well this picture said to me, terracotta, villa, lush growth......
So, here's my take on those elements..........

I combined 'Villa road' and 'Honey Beary' to make a scene that I think reflects the photo.
The terracotta villa, the lush grounds and the brown tones of the bear. I sponged the DP and sentiment to follow the colours through. The last piece being the chocolate ribbon that just breaks the card up a bit.

Well, I enjoyed using my little bit of imagination on this one and I'm sure YOU will do too! You WILL join in with us, won't you? 'Yeah, 'COURSE you will! Please hop on over and see the amazing samples over at Fairy Fun Fridays by my brilliant DT buddies. You will NOT be disappointed! TONS of inspiration to be had there! If you DO enter the challenge, you will be in with a chance of a super prize and a guest spot! Whoo Hoo! 

Well, I hope my card has given you a little bit of inspiration. Call back soon as I'll have some cards I made but couldn't show before, as the recipients hadn't received them.
'Till then have a wonderful weekend!
