Inkspirations Colour Challenge #28

Good morning!
How is your week going thus far?? Hopefully full of warm toasty days (whether that be due to the weather or being near fires!!) yummy food, great company and some little time for you!! :0)
I was able to play with Keesh's latest challenge again and may I say that these somewhat not often used colours were quite fun to play with! It's not every day you put orange and purple together but these are CHALLENGES so here is my card

My wonderful, talented friend Heather (HUGE WAVES AND HUGS TO YOU DEAR HEATH!) just recently taught "ME" (yes it was very cool to be shown by my best mate how to make something!) how to make these amazing paper flowers! LOOOOVVVVE THEM!! As I couldn't remember the site she showed me I came across this blog LOLLYCHOPS - (SUCH A FUN AND WONDERFUL BLOG) so you can see how to do it too! Do give them a try, they really are SUPER EASY and add that something extra I think to your projects!
Then with a bit of tearing and some spritzing my work/fun was done!

As I was looking at it on my shelf I knew Exactly who to send it to! A very special lady Leanne! She loves purple and her daughter Sarah LOVES orange!! How cool, they call them their signature colours! Hello to you sweet girls!! HUGE WAVES AND HUGS!!
Don't forget the DEALS OF THE WEEK which end tonight!! Other than that do have a terrific Tuesday!

WOW! The eggplant and pumpkin pie have by chance come together in my cardstock box and I have been thinking for ages that i *must* use them together. I love what you've done with them here and those flowers are so very fancy. Love them!

Leanne brought this card to work today to show me, its fantastic. I had a go at making those flowers last night but they didn't quite work out, but now I've seen the card up close I will give them another go. Belinda Phillips.
