DCM - A Mediterranean Corner

It's August already and the holiday season is in full swing, so if you notice a few gaps over the next few weeks at Daring Carmakers - that's why! As this is the first Friday of the month it's time for August's Colour Combination Challenge.

Once again we have a photo which we hope will inspire you to join in and get creative with us this week.

 a dash of powder blue and a smidgeon of purple

 Here is my card....

I had a dig through my stash to find something purple, it's not a colour I use very much and found the pale lilac spotty paper from MME.  I used my spellbinders die to add a decorative edge and used more MME Fiddlesticks paper for the base of my card.  I've had these chipboard hearts for a while and used the negative, as it is already white I decided to leave it as it was. 

I added some white shabby tea roses and a small pink hydrangea daisy to the edge of my chipboard frame.

My much loved butterflies are cut from a couple of PTI dies both using MME Fiddlesticks papers and another hydrangea daisy at the centre.  I added a little ivory button twine and a sweet sticker sentiment from MME. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team's creations.
