Favourite Colour Combo with Winter Wonderland

Hi Folks
Welcome to my first blog post of 2015.  I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.  I had a lovely time with family and friends on New Years Eve but was nursing a hangover yesterday.  I spent the day in my pyjamas curled up on the sofa watching TV.  Very lazy but nice to have a relaxed day.  Back to work and normality today before a weekend of crafting.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
Your Favourite Colour Combo
As it is the start of the year you can enter with any project at all, it does not have to be christmas related.

Here is my inspiration project featuring my favourite colour combo, anything purple related.

This card was made for some special friends of ours for christmas.  The images are from a Lily of the Valley paper pad.  Delightful images and make for really quick cards.  I used mirror card for the matting and layering.  I punched some snowflakes out of glitter card and added some ribbon, a big bow, dazzler and sentiment.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Winter Wonderland for full challenge details.
