Favourite colour combo

So although I'm a pink girl through and through when doing a colour combo this is definitely my favourite - blues and purples.  So I was delighted when I saw the current challenges from Passion for ProMarkers and A Creative Romance and decided to go a bit more fantasy with my colouring :)

Once I'd got over my biros challenge (in my previous blog) I set to work colouring Lili of the Valley's Midsummer 's Night with my ProMarkers - old faithful and no hand cramp from clinging onto the pens!  I added some glitter to the stars and on her wings.

The back ground paper is some I found recently from Amazon and is from Craft Creations - Pastel Chic.  The other papers used are from Lili of the Valley - Petal Fresh and Lili of the Valley and NitWit Collections - Solids - Snow Princess.

 To the left of the stamped image is a piece of purple ribbon from Lili of the Valley.  The sentiment I've used is from one of their art pads.  I've used a purple ProMarker to highlight the sentiment.

All that remains are the embellishments - some self adhesive pearlised gems, two brass metal mushrooms and flowers/a leaf from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges
Lili of the Valley - Anything Goes
Passion for ProMarkers - Favourite Colour Combo
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Fab N Funky - Anything with Ribbon
A Creative Romance - Photo inspiration (blues/purples)
Paradise of Stamps - Girly

I love the way this card has turned out - hope you do too
Happy Crafting ladies
