My favourite colours

Todays card contains some of my favourite colours; unlike pink, which is a colour I seem to only use in crafting, but never never never in clothing, I love, use and wear a lot of green, khaki, olive, sand, taupe, beige. And I find that together with purple, these colours are stunning! And to my delight, there were 2 different challenges this week with this colour combination. Happy me!
I also wanted to use the Raindrop Echo Designs digital sentiments for a while, and todays card seemed the perfect opportunity. Isn't the sentiment beautiful?
Sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs; the tree stamp is Papermania; the backing paper with green flourishes is from Love Jesse Edwards, Papermania; Green and purple cardstock are Core-dinations; purple vellum, purple flower, green button and brown cardstock are all from my own stash.

The challenges:
Daring Cardmakers - Tree-mendous
Cute Card Thursday - Tree-mendous
Colour throwdown - artichoke + eggplant + suede
Crafts and me - Purple and green
Fab'n'Funky - My favourite colour/s
Alphabet challenge - P is for punches

Hope your weekend is fantastic!
