Colour palette challenge

Hi everyone...hope you are all well.
I have a layout to share today (I know, it's been a while!) for a challenge over at Scrap Friends.

The challenges over at Scrap Friends have been on my "to do list" for quite a while now, but the months always seem to run out before I get a chance to do them....but yesterday afternoon, I had a few hours to spare, so I got stuck into the Colour Palette challenge #6


And this is what I came up with....






This is the yummy colour palette....

 
I not only based my layout on the gorgeous colour palette, but I also took inspiration from the entire image itself...and kind of used it as a sketch :)
 
 
Some close ups...
 
Cluster of Manor House & Kaiser blooms...with some 2crafty chicken wire & skeleton leaves.
 
 
 
A better close up of the chicken wire
 
 
 
And some more 2crafty - Pretty Butterfly
 
 
 
 
This colour palette is a little different for me...but I really loved playing along & also love how my layout has turned out.  Pic is of DD & I...and journaling about our relationship & being more than just her mum :)
 
And while we're talking about Scrap Friends....lucky me was one of the winners of their Birthday Candy giveaway earlier this month.  I have received my goodies from Angela...and WOW it is jam packed full of such gorgeous PRIMA goodness.

Thanks so much Angela!! :)

Clever, clever girl!!! LOVE that piccy - you look alike, too!! Fantastic flowers & that red on the bg & the way you've used the spotty button....you've just ...ROCKED it:):) We're still away...on the ship going to Istanbul. We were to visit Nessabar in Bulgaria today, by tender boats, but it was a 3 metre swell & 40 knot winds!! With all the Oldies on board they'd end up with lots of broken things, I think!!!! Gives us extra time in Istanbul which is GREAT. Up til now we've had absolutely perfect weather...take care...soooo glad you won the prize...weird, huh???!!!!!:):):)
