DYSU 13 - Clear, Light Pink & Mauve

Today the challenge at DYSU is:
Clear, Light Pink and Mauve

Well I decided to look up what colour mauve actually was on Wikipedia as I wasn't quite sure.  Once I was there I realised it provided the actual numerical combination to plug into my computer to get the colour.  So I did that and made my own paper! I used the first main type of mauve (incidentally I would have called this lilac!) as the background and Old Mauve (what I thought was mauve) as the polka dots!  To incorporate the 'clear' I made an acetate card.  Scroll down to the bottom for the links on where to get the paper for free!

My hubby came up with the inspired sentiment! So I made a little pocket inside to hold a gift card.

The image is from one of this week's sponsors: Digis With Attitude.

I printed her twice, once in reverse, so I could hide the back  through the acetate inside, same for the sentiment.

And here it is with the gift card.

There are three fabulous sponsors this week:


Added to this the Top three this week get 2 images from Alison's Shop Stretch 'n' Bubbles.

Oh and just in case any one wants it, my two types of polka dot paper is available for download here and here.
