Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Purple, Peach and Cream

Woohoo!!! Time for another challenge over at Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week we have a colour challenge of purple, peach and cream! How scumptious is that!?!?! Now, I have to admit though, I have never used these colours together and at first was a little unsure where I was going to go with my card until I had a rummage through my flower stash and grouped together some flowers in those colours so I made the bouquet a big focus on my card! The papers are gorgeous mini papers from the butterfly collection.

I have used another of my new Tildas from the Sweet Rainbow collection - how gorgeous is this Tilda flying her kite!!! Oh I just love her little bunches - so cute!! I've coloured her with copics and inked around the edge of the image with tattered rose distress ink.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid crafts except the peach rose on the left which was from one of my local craft shops, Running With Scissors. The gorgeous sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps and the leaves were die cut with a doohickey die. I also added some gorgeous lace and a gingham ribbon from my stash.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's stunning cards!! You won't be disappointed! Thanks for looking! x
