Purple, Blue & Green Challenge


Hey there, welcome to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog Challenge #17 - Purples, Blues and Greens. I really wanted to use Summer Breeze for my image and went on a frantic search for the perfect background.

Since I couldn't find just the right background image I decided to make my own - I wanted the wind to be blowing the background images too. What a great way to combine this challenge with Make It Colourful's Challenge #32 - Sunset with Clouds. I haven't had a chance to play along with MIC lately, but didn't want to pass this one up. I used the Midnight Madness Sketch #MMSC119 over at Pricillastyles blog, admittedly I flipped the middle border piece. This also qualifies for My Mums Craft Shop Challenge - It's Easy as 1-2-3 , I used 3 colours in my layout, purple, green and blue.

This was my "Night Sky" inspiration photo:

I admit, I had to photograph this card several times, the colours changed drastically in the photo's for some reason. This is the one that seems closest to IRL.

Now head on over to the Challenge Blog and check out all the other projects.
