Whiff of Joy challenge - 14

Whiff of Joy challenge this week is Purple & Green. I love purple and green together to the extent I even have the paper in my stash. This paper is Paper Adventure's Dazzle Diamonds. I used pastels to colour the image, which I matted and layered onto core-dinations card and added Cuttlebug vintage corners. The layout developed itself, in fact the whole card did it's own thing (funny thing is I usually like the cards that create themselves). The only stumbling block was the lack of 'nice' green flowers in my stash, apart from ones with brown spots - OK - the only thing to do was to turn the brown spots purple. In real life the ribbon is the same colour as the card, why when I photograph it does it look different - can anyone tell me?

Materials
Whiff of Joy - Melinda Blowing Kisses
Derwent pastels
Cuttlebug - Textiles folder - Vintage corners
Cardstock - Paper Adventures Dazzle Diamonds - Core-dinations
Eyelets, brad, spacer and ribbon from stash

Lovely card Rica. I would say the reason the ribbon turns out a different colour when photographed, is that the ribbon is a bit shiny and light reflects of shiny surfaces different than from mat surfaces. Hope this answers your concern.
Hugs from Desire
