Colour challenge…




Morning all, hope you’re all enjoying the weekend…

I’m back again because it’s time for the new Ribbon Girl colour challenge, and this month it’s Lilac/Purples

I enjoy these challenges because it gives me an excuse to go mad with the gorgeous ribbons and embellishments, for this one I used an image from the new ‘Beautiful Blooms’ art pad and some papers from the Promises solids pad which matched nicely



 May - Lilac or Purple 2


May - Lilac or Purple



Sorry about the pictures, the first one was in bright sunlight so there are shadows and the second one was taken on my camera at too low resolution  …but I think you can see ok!

I made a cute matching envelope also from the papers and the sentiment is from the Greetings Postmarks set


Here’s all the deliciousness I used from the Ribbon Girl store;

Topstitch thread

Lilac velvet lace



Liquid pearls

Flatback pearls

Mauve rose lavender seam binding

Bright purple organza

Button twine

Watering can charm



Do go and have a peek at all the gorgeous inspiration from the design team on the blog, you can find all the details and rules for the challenge on there …and there is a fabulous prize up for grabs as always




That’s it from me, BBQ today so I need to get to Marks and Spencer early before the shelves are emptied!!

Have a great day all
