Blue and purple

I quite often use one or the other - blue and purple, that is - but not often together. For 'opposites attract' for day 49 on 365 cards we were asked: 'Do you find that you have two colors that you just DO NOT use together? They don't even have to clash, but maybe you've found that those are just two colors you don't like to use at the same time. Well now you have to use them for this challenge. And they must be the dominant colors on the card.'

And Annabelle's current challenge is 'say it in ... purple and blue:

I used some more more paper and the metal brads butterfly from the We R Memory Keepers twirl collection stamping it randomly with Papermania swirl stamps. The square sentiment (sorry about the glare of the flash - it's much more blue irl) is one that I've had for ages - originally from a Dawn Bibby kit. I stamped with dusty concord DI and also used it to distress the edges. I then added a few little white pearls here and there on parts of the swirls.
