Colour combo on Sweet Pea Stampers

Hi all
Hope you are all warm in your neck of the woods and not having too much of the white stuff to contend with! It is blooming freezing here in Greater Manchester, but at least we don't have deep snow, we have been lucky so far to get away with a couple of inches! My poor Dad works away Monday - Friday and stays in his caravan (no he's not a gypsy lol) but the poor thing got well and truly snowed in this week, I will post a piccy below!
Today sees a new challenge over on Sweet Pea Stampers and this fortnight we have a gorgeous colour combination for you of purple, silver and white. All the DT cards look so striking in these colours, pop over to the blog to have a ganders. There are 3 FAB prizes on offer too!

I made my own backing paper using Tim Holtz swirl stamp and clear embossing powder, dust concord distress ink which I treated myself to last week), paper artsy butterfly embossed in silver, silver fairy charm, lace and flowers (which I have had forever lol) from my stash. I used Promarkers to colour the image and silver embossing powder to give the flowers a metallic look.

Here is a photo of my Dads caravan, don't think he quite had to dig himself out lol!

I am entering this into the following challenge:

In a Sweet Pea Dream - Monochromatic

Passion for Promarkers - Old (flowers) and new 9Dusty concord distress ink)

Allsorts - Monochrome (hope the silver is ok)
