A colour challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio

Hi there, don't the weeks seem to go quickly or am I getting old?? Don't answer that lol. Its time for this weeks challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio and this week Shelly and her team of mermaids have a fab colour challenge for you, they want to see turquoise and brown projects. This is one of my favourite colour combinations and a perfect opportunity to colour Angelica as a brunette too. You can find Angelica and lots more stunning digi stamps in Michelle's Etsy Store.

As usual, i've coloured Angelica with promarkers and I've added turquoise stickles to the flowers in her hair. I've used a turquoise/teal bp and a brown bp from K&Co and punched the borders with a MP punch.I've used a beautiful chocolatey coloured ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, i've been saving it for ages but had to use it as I thought it was a perfect match for the colours in this card. The large swirly corners are a Chocolate Baroque stamp, embossed with vintage photo Distress EP. I've added some flowers from WOC which have been coloured with glimmer mists and blinged up with some more stickles.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T: flowers
Crafters Companion: Aqua and brown
Delicious Doodles: Anything goes
I love promarkers: anything goes
Simon Says: Emboss it
Sparkles Forum : Anything goes
