This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Colour to Pair with Purple.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

Firstly the GORGEOUS card made by our lovely guest designer
Lorraine Bailey
Using Pretty Posy
My favourite colour to go with purple is green. 
Green goes with anything but it does remind me of flowers and being in the garden.

Using A Big Present Purple isn't a colour I use very often but I've chosen the same paper collection as Annette for my inspiration (NitWits Snow Princess) and I love it teamed up with the aqua for a change

Purple is one of my favourite colours and I've teamed it with aqua from my favourite 'Snow Princess' papers to frame this little Christmas bear.  The purple backing card was a little hard to photograph because it's got a sheen which reflected in the light but it does look lovely in real life!

Purple and bright green are my favourite colours for Halloween.  Though I don't make many Halloween cards, I feel these colours are a little more whimsical.

I have gone for purple and Turquoise. I think purple is a pretty versatile colour to combine with, especially using  butterflies and flowers.

Using Little Friends Mouse with Daisy
I don't use purple very often on my cards. Most of the times my purple cards are for Halloween. I love purple together with green, so I have made something with a flower. 

I have also gone for purple and green.  
I love purple flowers so green was the obvious choice for me.

Now this was a conundrum as I am not really a huge fan of purple and rarely use it. So, I teamed it with a bright pink accent to compliment the pretty blooms on my image and I think it works!!

You might have known that I would go for bright!  I have chosen purple plus yellow as, not only are they complementary, they also remind me so much of Spring flowers.

I like the colour combination purple with green, especially if they are bright colours.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
