Purple and Yellow at Make It Colourful

Morning Peeps,

The first day of a long weekend and gosh do I need it, I am whacked!

Today at Make It Colourful the challenge is to colour using purple and yellow. As you'll know from a previous post yellow and me just don't get on, but a challenge is a challenge and  I'm sure you'll all want to experiment too as we are being sponsored by Diane from Maganolialicious.  Here's what I created:-

The papers are Pion sent to me by the lovely Maria for my birthday this week, thank you hun, I told you they'd make it to a card quick, lol.

The conrer flourish and the butterfly are lasercut chipboard pieces available from Make It Crafty and are my ultimate favourite embellishment at the moment.

I have used Across the Bridge Digi Stamp from Make It Crafty and paired with Tilda with Flower Pot available from Magnolialicious.  I can right now that Diane only has the mini version available but I'm sure if you email her she will be more than willing to help. 
I have used  

Across the Bridge Digi Stamp available HERE
Tilda with Flower Pot available HERE
Lasercut Chipboard Flourish and Butter available HERE 
Papers are Pion
Cardstock is Bazill
Flowers from Wild Orchid Craft
Lace, Pearls, Perfect Pearls, Yellow and Lilac Acrylic Paint from Stash

Adorable card. My 17 year old son walked in the room as I opened your blog and he said, "Now that's a good one!" That is a great compliment from a guy. Thanks for joining us at SSD
