Trykkpressa's May Challenge

This time it is my turn again, to set up the monthly challenge in our Ett trykk blog.
It seems like colour challenges are popular this spring, and I wanted to try out a "new" combination of colours: PURPLE and TURQOUISE! So please check out the Trykkpressa's May Challenge - We hope you'll join the fun!

The front of the card:


Innside: Behind the sentiment, there's a pocket to put some money in, or a giftcard


The back:


A closeup of the beautiful Gourjuss girl:


I've made this card for my sister in law, who's birthday's the 5th of May, but we're going to her birthday party tomorrow. She love's the colours purple, turqouise and black, and silver jewellery, so I hope she likes this :)

Card recipe:
Size: 15x15 cm
Ink: Archival Ink - Coffee for stamping, Distress Ink for colouring (mainly the colours Broken China and Dusty Concord) and inking the edges, and ColorBox Fluid Chalk - Charcoal for inking the edges on the purple PP.
Image: Sugar Nellie - Gourjuss Girls 1
Sentiments: On the front - Norsk Stempelblad ("Happy Birthday!"), Innside - Papirloftet ("Life is'nt just a game. It's also a dance on roses."). On the back I've used my signaturestamp from My Costum Stamps.
Patterned papers: Basic Grey - Eva Collection (purple paper) and Making Memories - Flocked Brocade Poolside Paperie.
Cardstock: Bazzill - Light Turquise, and Aquarelpaper.
Embellishments: Frantic Stamper - Ribbon, Panduro - Headpins, Wild Orchid Crafts - Roses, Papirloftet - Glitter Hearts, Unik Hobby - Methal Charm and White Flowers, Prima - White Flowers and Say it in Studs.
Tools: Spellbinders - Nestabilities Labels 4, EK Suksess - Corner Punches (small and medium), Gluepads.

Som vanlig er jo alle dine sider på kortet helt nydelige.
Turkis liker jeg godt, men synes lilla er vanskelig, så vi får se....
