A colour challenge at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, well I've been very quiet again this week but today its time for a new challenge from Crafty Ann's Challenge blog and this time around its a colour challenge:
you have a choice of either a monochrome card in shades of turquoise/aqua, or lilac/purple or you can do a duotone card using both of these colour palettes. These colours only please, this isn't a general monochrome challenge

I've chosen to make a duotone card using Crafty Ann's image 'Beautiful Hibiscus', its one of my favourite of Ann's images as it looks gorgoeus whatever colour palette you use. I've added a little black enamel accents to the flower centres and popped the image up on 3d foam over a paper doiley. The backing paper is from Crafty Ann's imperial purple scrapbook kit. You can find Crafty Ann's digi stamps and scrapbook kits here.

I've added some ribbon from my stash and some stamped lace, the stamp is from Lace FRagments from Chocolate Baroque, stamped on vellum and embossed with gold EP.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Everybody Art: Anything goes
LEJ DEsigns: anything goes
The perfect Sentiment: anything goes
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
