Colour challenge at Polka Doodles

Another Friday is upon us and the this year is whizzing away too quickly for my liking! I can't believe that we are almost half way through this year. Definitely blink and you'll miss it. I sometimes wish I was Dr Who's companion so we could go back in time I can enjoy the past again at a slower rate.

Being Friday, it can only mean one thing, Polka Doodles Challenge time. For my card this week, I have to say I struggled with the colour scheme "purple" as it's not a colour I use predominately in my projects. After much agonising, I finally pulled myself together and my card then came together very quickly. The papers are from Cherry Blossom Lane CD and the scrummy cupcake is from Studio 12 Picknix collection 1 CD along with the matching ticket sentiment.

I had to add another colour to the scheme and my cupcake was the "way in", and I made a lickle crochet flower. This is joined to the ribbon with a button. As I was feeling a little guilty about not strictly sticking to the colour scheme, I have even added purple crystal gems to the centre of my ribbon roses. 

I am entering my card in to  he following challenges:

Creative moments - lots of layers
Bearly-mine challenges - colour challenge
Everybody Art Challenge - sketch
Crafty Bloggers - BINGO - die cut (flourish & border), flowers & ribbon
Fab'n'Funky Challenges - girly

Well we've got a house full this weekend and there was me thinking I might get a little quiet .... obviously not! I hope you all have a great weekend, whatever you decide to do ... or not do!
