Summer of Colour - Lime Green & Purple

Hi
I just love this colour combination !

Lime green is one of my favourite "go to" colours - but I have always teamed it up with black before this !
So trying it with purple has been a fun adventure into new territory !

I have created a page in my Journal using a couple of new Sizzix embossing folders which I hadn't had a chance to play with until now.
I used Inkagold to highlight the embossed areas - lime onto the purple card - onto a background lightly inked with Pear Tart Momento Ink and some lime & lilac Glimmer Mists.

The journalling is in circles - I saw this design on a blog which entered for last week's colours - and I liked the idea - so I had a go at my own version.
The words are about my feelings as we swing by the summer solstice !

And last month we went to the Royal Horticultural Society's famous gardens at Wisley - and here they have taken the lime & purple combination to a whole new level in their spring planting plan - thought you would enjoy seeing how spectacular it looked !  

Looking forward to seeing your lime & purple entries this week !
