DT for Creative Moments-Use Neutral Colours

good morning everyone well looking out the window this morning the road seems a lot clearer just hope the 'snow' that's left on the paths isn't as icy as it looks or i may end up on my bum on my way to work lol.

well its challenge time again over at Creative Moments and the theme is use neutral colours....i was a bit naughty on this challenge as i started to colour the image in neutral colours (grey for the lighthouse) then came back to it a few days later and forgot what the theme was lol so when you see my card you know why lol...

this time we are sponsored by:

Floppy Latte who are offering a voucher to spend in store

so using the lighthouse image here is what i made...

so i coloured my image using promarkers then when i came back to it a few days later i thought the theme was nature (dont ask) lol.
so decided to punch out some green leave out of scrap paper and run them up both sides like boarders.
i then punched out some purple flowers again from scrap paper and added them in-between the leaves on both sides.
then i found some purple butterfly's which i added in-between the leaves and flowers.
i then used a die to make paper roses and made a big and small rose with leaves to add tot the top of the card.
i then used a punch to punch the nice big purple butterfly and added gems to the body and antenna's.
to finish i used the ribbon borders i already had cut out using a die and added some cream and burgundy ribbon to it colouring the flowers in the top one purple.

i hope you like this even though i went slightly off track lol xx

i am entering this in to the following challenges:
