Good Morning Everyone,

A new challenge at As You Like It starts today and we would like to see your projects using your favourite colour to go with purple.

I have chosen green for my DT card.  I do love purple flowers so thought green was the obvious choice and I thought I would have a go at an all over flower card.  I have embossed the images, which are from Altenew Peony Bouquet, in gold and coloured them with Zig clean colour brush pens.  I am still a novice with the pens, but do like using them for florals.

The sentiment is a freebie from a magazine.  I embossed it onto vellum, but didn't like seeing the images underneath on this one as the leaves were quite busy, so I cut a piece of the card the same size to attach with the vellum.  Tiny crystals and sequins have been added for a little sparkle.

The sponsor of the challenge is:

with a prize for the lucky winner

I would like to enter:
