Whiff of Joy Challenge - Green and Purple

I love this colour combo so was thrilled to bits when I saw what this weeks challenge was!! I really enjoyed making this card - it seemed to come together all by itself (don't you just love cards that do that lol).

I've based this card on Katharina's Sketch number 29. I just love working with her sketches. I must apologise for the photo's - I have taken so many pictures to try and get the true colour of the purple with no success :( It IS purple - promise.

The inside is decorated to match the front, with a computer generated sentiment


And the back using up some scraps.


Recipe:

Melinda blowing kisses by Whiff of Joy coloured with:
Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord, Tattered Rose
Twinkling H2O's - Solar Gold, Fern, Cedar Wood, Wild Plum, Chestnut Brown
Papers are from the DCWV Paper Stack
Flower - Joanna Sheen
Sentiment stamp from an Anna Griffin Set
Corners - Cuttlebug die
Border punch - Martha Stewart

Thanks for looking,
