I love colour challenges!!


When I saw the colours for this weeks challenge over at CR84FN this week I really wanted to play along as I love the spring like colours in the inspirational photograph. While looking through my scrap basket last week I found a couple of backgrounds that I had made and never used, I made this card with one of them and as they were both green backgrounds I decided to use the other in the card for this challenge!
This time I have added a  butterfly coloured with copic markers( this is a digital image that I have re sized) and some lavender ribbon.


Its hard to see from the photograph but the butterfly trail is created with aqua coloured gems and I have also added a few yellow gems and pearls to complete the colour requirements.


















This is the colour swatch, isn't it beautiful!!

I was lucky enough yesterday to receive to receive this sweet award from Eleclyah in Italy,  Grazie mille  Eleclyah!!
