Here's my card which features 3 sets, BBD7, Stemmed Flowers and a sentiment from Fanciful flowers.

Thank goodness for Copic markers! That's how I got close to the colours this week, using B91,93 and 95. With RV11 which really isn't Lilac but the sample looked a bit pinkish to me :)  Maybe V95 would have been better.................hmmmmm!

I started by stamping off BBD7 (in London Fog) to some scrap paper before adding it to the smooth white card base. The sentiment was stamped in the same colour ink before adding the petals from Stemmed Flowers. To add the required bling I used Icicle Sprinkles.

Check in with the Belles who have some more ideas on working with this colour scheme. Links are under the DT tab at the top of my page.

Thanks for calling by, see you soon.......

Hi Sue .I did not realize that you could use "near to "colours for challenge . Fabulous card from you especially the background and the randomness [ is that a word?] of flowers and bling .
