Blue, or is it?

Morning Peeps :)

This is the Colour Inspiration Photo our Donna has chosen for this week's Challenge over at Cupcake, and it's gorgeous. Who doesn't want a room like this?


The first time I saw this picture, I thought, oooooh blue and yellow, I don't do that.... cooooooooooooooooool challenge! The other day, I got to choosing some papers to use. It took a while as, I don't really do blue and yellow so much. (Why, they look great together?!) Then I looked at the picture again and my tummy dropped. Is that blue, blue? Or, is it purple? Eeeeeks!


Anyway, I stuck with a nice, deep, rich blue. Or did I? Does my blue look purple too? ;)


So, pop over and see what the rest of The Cupcakes have been up to, say hi to our brilliant Guest Cupcake, Polly and check out the fab prizes from Mo's Digital Pencil and Simon Says Stamp.

Have a great day.

Sweet card ♥♥

Babs said...

I did exactly the same thing... first thought it was blue, then it started to look more purple to me. Let's call it "periwinkle" sort of a lovely cross between the two. Anyway, I think your card is fabulous, great colouring and layout.
Have a lovely day,
Babs xo.
