Teal 'n' Lilac

Good morning all,
A quick post today as I will be with my grandson again and I won't have time for anything but him soon.
One reminder before I start....don't forget to look for the Candy competition word/s  as mentioned in yesterdays post.  Hint: there is more than one today.

Todays card I have created with one of my all time favourite colours Lilac.  I have teamed it with a colour that alot of people would say could never coordinate with Lilac, but I think when you see it you will be surprised.
So without further this ado, here's my card.  Oh, by the way, the sentiment is actually straight, I think my camera angle has distorted it (come on now, don't mock me, I am trying here....LOL!!)

 So what do you think, does the Teal, cream, turquoise and lilac go together?  I felt it was a success, so I do hope you agree, but please don't be afraid to say if you don't like it.  I love constructive criticism, it helps me grow as a crafter.

I have finished the inside to match, to give it a more professional finish.
Everything I used for this card except the teal and cream cardstock are items I have had in my stash for ages.  I decided last week that it was about time I used up some of my older craft products, alot of which are stunning and should never have been game forgotten.  So all the cards that I have made over the past few days have all been made with papers and flowers etc that are at least 3-4years old.  How good am I? (I know, not very, I should have started using them a long time ago!!)

Ok, that's it for now.  I hope you all have a wonderful day today, I will be round the blogs this evening and look forward to seeing everyones creations.  I'm sorry I missed your blogs last night but I fell asleep and didn't do anything on the pc at all.
Take care.  Linda xx
