An unusual colour scheme

Hello, I have made three alost identical cards with a very unusual colour scheme - purple and green and I must say I like them. I used Nit Wit collection papers "Just Ducky' which I bought to have more purple papers in my stash. My Mil loves purple and my Mum loves blue so I am always on the lookout for some pretty papers in these colours. My mum asked me to make a card for my aunt with shoes on and in greens and this card practically made itself. There is a bit of bling and glossy accents but you can't see them on here. Used the first blog candy I ever won from Michelle at the card grotto, a huge bag of bling which I am sure will keep me going for years.

Also tried a new technique with my MS punch, I punched it first them measured from the edge of the card to the end of the punched design and then doubled it and cut the strip to that width, I allowed and extra 2 mm and this gives the strip in the middle. I tried the exact measurements and this is amazing but I did prefer the strip in the middle. I have been resting this week so have watched more tv than I care to remember and saw how to do this on C&C with Leonie.

Papers: Nit Wit 'Just Ducky'
