Use your favourite colour combo at Pennys Papercrafty Challenge

Good morning all

(I'll be back later this morning with my DT card for the Paper Shelter)

Its time for another challenge at

 Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges

This week we have an easy peasy challenge for you 

Use your favourite Colour combo

I used a Pink/Kraft combo

The image is called Butterfly and Bluebonnet from Eureka Stamps available here
I just love this pretty image - I thought it was Lupins but Eureka call it Blue Bonnet.  Maybe its just the same thing different continent! - I'm sure some botanical person will be able to put me right.
The picture looks brighter than it actually is - I photographed it with a flash photo and I think its picked up the white areas and brightened them!

I'm feeling a need to get a bit distressed and inky lately so really enjoyed making this card- this was my direction when I very first started making cards and I've meandered into allsorts of other places on the way  - I've just sent for some lovely vintagey (is that a word!) stamps - so watch this space for the return of vintage!!
I sent this card to a lovely blogging buddy of mine for her birthday and I know she has it now so its safe to show!

We have two great sponsors this week

Such a gorgeous vintage card, Judith! Your friend will be just thrilled. BTW, it looks like lupine to me, as well. Thanks so much for joining our first challenge at Aurora Wings. xxD
