Viva La Verve Week 1 meets Play Date Cafe Colour Spalsh

Hey there!

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend.  The sun is just starting to poke its head out from behind the bank holiday clouds - I'm not holding my breath mind you!

Poor weather + other half at work all weekend = peace and quiet time for crafting!  So that's what I've been doing :)

I am attempting to post this months' Viva La Verve challenges in order this time, even though I started off with Week 4's sketch!  One day!

I was inspired by the colour story over at the Play Date Cafe this week.  It's been quite some time since I've entered a PDC challenge so I'm pleased that I've got round to it this week :)  I HAD to play along with this colour combination.  My best friend is getting married in three weeks time and I made all her wedding stationary.  Her colour scheme?  Black, white and lime!  I have a whole bunch of black, white and lime card around me so it would've been criminal not to enter this challenge!

So, here's my card;

I know it's not a 'splash' of lime per se, but I'm hoping that I'll get away with it :)  (I'm pushing my luck lately huh?!)

I have made this card for a dear friend of mine who lives in Australia.  We used to speak via email most days, but recently life has got a bit busy for both of us and we've lost touch a bit.  I got a wonderful email from her yesterday saying how much she misses our chats and so I thought I'd send her a card to let her know that I miss her too :)  Shame it's going to take so long for it to get to her!

Because I didn't want the bow to get ruined in transit, I have made this box for the card to go in;

I really hope she likes it :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend guys, whether it be long or short :)
