The Pink Elephant # 21 - Favourite Colour Combo....































Good morning folks!

How are you - very well I hope? What a beautiful day we have in store today in the UK and I hope also for the rest of the world............ lol, okay I think maybe that's a bit too much to ask to sort the weather out for every country in the land!!!

I think this is the first time ever I've entered The Pink Elephant Challenge - I love it when I can enter something I haven't had chance to enter before. This week's brilliant theme is to use your fave colour combo. Hmmmmmmm, quite tricky as I have so many that I love working with, but in the end I plumped for blue, green and pink, always a winner for me! I got to play with my new Basic Grey papers too, YUM! These are from the Lemondae range and are so summery. I got to play with another of the gorgeous download Pixies from Charmed Cards and Crafts and this one is Waterlily. If you want to see more of them you can find them HERE. The circle is also part of the download package and the sets are amazing value and give you so many options........ yes it's official, I love 'em!!!!

I used my new Woodware leaf punch for the corners and coloured the image with Copics. The wings were created with vellum and I embossed them with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.

Hope you have a wonderful day today, catch you later ;o)
