Crafty Ann's Challenge #73 - Friday 31 August 2012

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.  The topic is "you have a choice of either a monochrome card in shades of turquoise/aqua OR lilac/purple OR you can do a duotone card using both of these colour palettes".  Please make sure that you follow this colour scheme.  It is NOT a general monochrome challenge.
For my card I used an iris digital image designed by Crafty Ann which I coloured in with Promarkers, die-cut, inked the edges and then stacked up like a pyromage.  I have used various backing papers/embellishments from Crafty Ann's including the Imperial Purple Digital Scrapbooking Kit and Sweet Sage Digital Scrapbooking Kit (for the little butterfly which was then changed to match the rest of the colour scheme).  The card has been finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment and some card candi.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Come and Get It - Show us your flowers
House of Gilli - Favourite colour combo (for me it has to be lilac and purple)
Cupcake Craft - Flowers
Through the Craft Room Door - Divas or anything goes
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes
Everybody Art - Anything goes
LEJ Designs - Anything goes
Crafts and Me - Birthdays
I Love Promarkers - Anything goes

The Perfect Sentiment - Anything goes and sentiment
Southern Girls Challenge - It's all about the flora
Daring Cardmakers - Focus on flowers
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Stampin with the Dragon - Birthdays

Lovely card! Your violet colors go well together - that's my favorite shade of irises. I like the way you stacked your image cuts and the little butterflies in the corners were a nice surprise. Thank you for joining us at the Perfect Sentiment.
