Colour Create - Deep Purple, Bright Green and Cream

Hello blog friends!  We have a new challenge for you today over at Colour Create with a colour inspiration pic chosen by me and the colours to use are
Deep Purple, Bright Green and Cream.  The optional extra is to use bows.

Now, you'd think, wouldn't you, that having chosen the colours myself, I'd remember to use all three I'd chosen!   Well from my card  pictures you might realise that it's rather light on the old cream element because, well basically, I forgot!!

The image is another awesome purchase from Crafts and Me   - Belladona by Janna Prosvirina - just gorgeousness personnified!! 
I used a fleur de lys nestie and another Cheery Lynn on top to extend the leaf and greenery theme from the image, and made the stepper card using the free scoring board that came with April's Papercraft Inspiration magazine ( that just happens to have a card of mine in!!) 
You can just see a little bit of cream on the ribbon here - phew, can I get away with it?She's coloured with Pro and Flexmarkers with some glamour dust on her wings. The sentiment came from the same pad as the papers which are really old stash from Deja Views.

The prize up for offer at Colour Create is a guest design spot for two challenges with us on the DT  - would so love to have you join us.  If you like to play along but need some more inspiration take a look here at the gorgeous makes by the rest of the Colour Create DT!!

I'm also entering my card into the current challenge at Crafts and Me Challenges which happens to be Elegant Fairies!!

That's all from me for today!!

I've used this colour combo once, a very long time ago and loved it. All because of a sheet of paper I had. I know I still have some somewhere but would have to move heaven and earth to find it lol. Gorgeous card, so much depth and a beautiful image

Goodness, Jooly, this is pretty breaktaking! I love the leafy Art Nouveau feel you achieved here, it fits the image perfectly too. Had to smile a little when I saw that it was your choice of colours in this challenge....I always think of you when it comes to a strong purple and green colour combo cos you were the first person I saw use it and I was always so taken with your colour combos (still am!).

It was lovely that you dropped by my blog today, did you notice that the comment above yours was from Loretta? Yay! the triplets back together, lol. CoB

I am having soooo much trouble getting into your comments, Julie! I've been trying for days! I saw you colour this image and I loved her but goodness me she looks stunning now. Like she is sitting in an arbour or a wood. Love the purple and green and all of the die cuts and flowers and everything. It's a stunner! Hugs, Lesley
