A colour challenge at Catch the Bug

Weekly Challenge!

Hello, hope your weekend has started well, it's the last Saturday of January and we have a colour inspiration challenge for you at Catch the Bug. I think these colours are wonderful, such rich shades of purple and violet. I made a card featuring Teacup flowers 2, such a pretty image! It's a simple layout, I cut a strip from the card front and rounded the edges to add interest. The darker purple background is embossed with a woven texture EF (no idea of make). The lighter strip with the dots was already embossed. I added a stamped sentiment and a few brads.

As always there's plenty more to be seen over at Catch the Bug, so come on over and join the fun.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Chris this is gorgeous. Love the layout! We were both thinking purple flowers for this color scheme and the dotted Bazzil paper. Those stars are perfect.

Hi Chris,
yes you are right those colours are very ruch and regal looking.
Such a beautiful design the embossed background looks like knitting to me and as always you have coloured it perfectly.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
