DDSC #79 - Green and Purple

Hello again!!
Our challenge this week over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges has a colour theme of Green and Purple. This is a good one as it covers many subjects - including Halloween which is drawing ever nearer.

I didn't opt for a Halloween card but instead chose this delightful image of flowers in a wheelbarrow which you can find in the shop here. As I could not find any purple card to compliment the green DP I had chosen, I coloured the mats, seam binding and leafy embellishments with a Promarker.  The flowers were already purple and matched really well!!

Close up of the gorgeous image

and inside of the card (managed to complete it on this one).

Right then ladies, you know the drill - pop over to the Challenge blog, take a looksee at all the gorgeous DT cards and then join in the fun :0)  The October special is still running in the shop so there are some great bargains to be had and if you choose to use a Digi Doodle Shop image, you are entered into the challenge twice.

Recipe:
Medium - Promarkers
DP - First Edition  "Spring Feast"
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Leafy embellishments - MS punch and Doohickey
Seam binding and roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Spellbinders label

Once again, thank you so much for looking and I hope you liked what you found.
Hugs
Denise xx

Really beautiful card Denise.
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one to match colours with Promarkers. I think it saves having to carry too much cardstock too.
Thanks for joining in with our Ribbons and Bows challenge.
