Papertake Weekly Challenge - Guest Designer Card

This is my last card as a Guest Designer for the Papertake Weekly Challenge, where the challenge this week is a colour combo:

'Lemon & Lilac'

Now these aren't colours I use very often...and I was a bit worried about how they'd work...but I love the way they look together on this card. I couldn't find any suitable papers...so I decided to use plain card, and emboss with my Cuttlebug to create some texture. I used the 'Swiss Dots' and 'Victoria' folders on the lemon card, which I matted on to lilac. The image is 'Lavender Dreams', the flower (split in two, and added behind the image) is from Poppicrafts, and the pearls are from the Quixotic Paperie.

Make sure you go and check out the fabulous cards by the regular design team - thanks for having me girls, I've really loved being a part of your team! :0)
