Purple and Green

Hello again! My second post for the day, and this time it's for our latest challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges, and our prize is another surprise goody box!! We would like you to use the colours Purple and Green! I will admit I was a bit bemused when I started this, as it's a combination I don't really use, but I have rather enjoyed making this card.

I have used Marianne dies to make my flowers, and kept them all the same colour, so although they are all different, they all match! I really love these flowers, as they can look as elegant or as grungy as you like, depending on what card or paper you use to make them...

What I have used:
Flowers - handmade using Marianne dies
Leaves - Magnolia DooHickeys and Joy Crafts
Sentiment - Penny Black

I would like to enter the following challenges please:
Sugar Creek Hollow - My Rose Garden
As you like it Challenge - Favourite Flowers or Trees (flowers are easy to make and always look fab!!)
Clearly iStamp - Thank You
Aud Sentiments - Any sentiment
Crafty Ribbons - Anything goes with ribbon

Thank you again for stopping by, please have a look at what the other girls have created at Dream Valley Challenges, and remember to enter the challenge!!

Love and light
Claire xx

I didn't think I would use the flower dies but looking at yours makes me want some!! this is so pretty. I always forget with color challenges that you can change the portion of each color you use...I forget I can have a "touch" of something. You mastered these colors it looks wonderful.

Thanks for playing in Clearly iStamp Blog Challenge #6 - Thank you.
