good evening all.a word of warning!! you may burst out laughing at my card tonight, it is seriously pants!!i really struggled with this colour combo but i wanted to give it a try.lets just say its a first and probably a last all in one.
so this different!! card is going into the following challenge:

offending products used are:

i love purple and green together, my room as a teenager had two lime green walls and two purple walls, and adding the orange makes it very halloween-y, the only yuk thing about it is the clown cos hes so creepy, i hate clowns, he is coloured in beautifully tho, :)

I hope you meant pants as in clown baggy-pants!

Well I didn't burst out laughing but it did put a big smile on my face. As soon as I saw this challenge I thought 'not doing that one' as I thought it would only be suitable for Halloween cards (don't do 'em) but you have made a great job of this. Debs xx
