Polka Dot Paradise Colour Challenge


I have been following Ashley Newell's blog for some time. She is an amazing artist. This colour challenge is from her new online magazine called 'Embellish'. Check it out HERE and Ashley's personal blog HERE.

This is my third attempt to do this challenge, and even though these are not traditionally 'christmas colours', I thought it turned out ok. I think I will put this in for the 'Moxie Fab Challenge' as well.

Card: Apricot appeal, purley pomegranite, pumpkin pie and very vanilla
Ink: Purely pomegranite, apricot appeal, pumpkin pie and vintage cream
