Magnolia Down Under Challenge #99

Hi, well it's Sunday and we have a new challenge for you to play along with at Magnolia Down Under...  this week's challenge is a colour recipe....


WOWZERS what a combo huh??  When I saw this one come up in the list, I was like OMG who on earth thought of this colour combo???  BUT as it turned out.... Apricot and Purple don't look too bad together - I'm rather impressed actually!! I think I might keep this colour combo!!!

So I did have lots of fun making this one, I've used heaps of Doo Hickey's but not all of them made it to this card... hahahah, I was going to stick on a swirl... but it just wouldn't fit!! 

So I hope you will come and play along this week in what has turned out to be a pretty awesome colour combination, I can't wait to see what you all create!!
