Colour Create - Lilac, Grey and White MMmmmm!!

Morning - Happy Thursday to me!!  I've got two days off work, having an MOT today on myself!  Haircut, pedicure and then rushing around doing a few bits of shopping!! 
First job of the day though is to share with you my card for our new challenge at Colour Create with a wonderful colour scheme chosen by our fabulous Mina:

Lilac, Grey and White
(with the optional extra of snowflakes)

Not a normal colour combo for me but I love it and think it's perfect for frosty winter scenes and crimbo cards.  I've used this beautiful fairy from Mos Digital Pencil, Teen Fairy Pia which you can find here. Coloured with my PMs and the new FlexMarkers - love them and cannot wait to get my hands on the whole set of colours!!! 
The border is punched with an MS round the page set (and the cut out means you get loads of little snowflakes to keep for later projects!).  You may also just make out that I've embossed the white mat with a snowflake design - it'a  Tando Mask and great for embossing too.  The snowflakes embellies are cut with a Marianne design set, in acetate and then dipped in Twinklets glass glitter.  Rest of the stuff is stash that has no name!!! 
Our fabulous and regular sponsor, Michelle's Scrapbooking, is with us this fortnight so you could win something yummy from her selection.

I shall look forward to seeing your gorgeous makes over the next couple of weeks - oh and don't forget to check out the beautiful cards here from my DT mateys- fab cards!!
Off to be Mum's Taxi service now, so have a good day and see you later!

Interested to see you've used the ol' flexmarkers. I've got all the PM's and my bro' has just offered to buy me some of the new FM's for my birthday. Will I really 'need' them if I've already got PM's which I just love? If yes, which colours would you recommend first? xx
