I have made this with the following challenges in mind

Mojo Monday #172 - The sketch
CR84FN #10 - Colour challenge - lilac, aqua, yellow & green 
CD Sunday - New year - new to you
Saturday Challenge #116 - Tons of texture
Phindy's Place #37 - Distressing
Rainbow Lady's CB #134 - It's all new to me

The 'new' is the green BP  from the Rose Garden pad by Papermania I bought yesterday. The aqua is from a K&Co pad and this is only the second sheet I've used so this is quite new too.
The lilac and purple strip is from Debbi Moore's Glitter & Glitz Magic Moments CD
The aqua BP has been treated to the CB texture embossing folder and the edges distressed with ColorBox chalk inkpad yellow cadmium, another of my purchases yesterday.

Thank you so much for dropping in today - I hope you will stop by again
Cheers me dears :-)
