Blame it on Cadbury's!

Aurora Wings are currently having a challenge with the theme "My Favourite Colour Combo", so I was discussing this with a friend. My favourite colour is purple, which I blame on Cadbury's, but I never really thought about a favourite combo. My friend suggested purple and chocolate. I don't recall ever using that as a combo so thought it was a great idea. With the Cadbury's connection I've also added gold. I'm picturing the old style Dairy Milk wrapper with the gold foil!!
I've used the gorgeous image 'Poppy Elf' and changed things up a bit by doing her skin purple and the flowers brown.

  • Bronze card
  • Outline stickers
  • ProMarkers -  Aubergine, Plum, Purple, Amethyst, Lilac, Lavendar, Burnt Sienna, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel
