Challenge #119 - "Your Favourite Colour Combo" - Pink Gem Challenges

Before I start my post I want to apologise to all my followers for not visiting them as often as I have done, but I have a problem with my left eye, I have PVD which means the jelly attached to my retina has become detached and it causes me a problem with my vision at the moment I keep getting huge floaters in my direct vision and having to try and look through it is like looking through a thick net curtain, so as I said if I dont visit you to often you will know why.
Good Morning Crafters, well do you know that I have reached my third DT Card for Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot and Im really enjoying playing with their images and papers, Janet is really talented and its a pleasure to be on one of her Design Teams.

 For this weeks Challenge its all about "Your Favourite Colour Combo" and for me its got to involve anything lilac or purple so heres the end result.

And I have used "Posh Poppy" for my image and your will find her here, I have printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens then used one of my Nestabilitie Dies to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount out of deep purple card. The sentiment is also cut out with the small die and then mounted on a slighty larger one.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of purple card and the papers are from one of the Pink Gems Digi Papers you will find a fabulous choice here, I used three different shades of pink and purple and layered them up as shown, I then wrapped a piece of lilac web ribbon around my card and attached to the back of the first mount then placed a pink ribbon on top and did the same with the ends of this. Afterwards I placed the mounted image towards the left and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
I also used a La La Land banner die in purple and placed it across the top right hand corner and the final flourish is the pearls in the two opposite corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Pink Gem Challenges Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this fortnights "Your Favourite Colour Combo" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hello Shirley,

Been a very poor visitor of late thanks to health issues but trying hard to get back into the swing of things and just wanted to say hello and check out your recent makes.

Can relate to the eye problem, it's not nice at all and does need rest from the screen glare.
