NEW CALL: Forever Always Monthly Colour Combo Challenge


Well when seeking colour challenges, this one was suggested by Michelle W. Not sure what triggered it, but I know when I chose it as this months colour combo, I was thinking spring cleaning. When I think crisp clean and white, I think of crisp white walls, or a crisp white blouse, but I guess the ultimate to that crisp white clean image is those thick cotton sheets, the ones that smell of a summers day and a super clean house! So this is our inspiration for this month.
Hope it inspires lots in you. I know the DT were daunted by this one, but just check out our inspiration - it really is easy once you get started.
Cruising the web I found this stunning bed, and sighed, oh perfect white, crisp and clean!

CHALLENGE: - Share your colour combo layouts with us in the gallery and you could earn a crisp box of freshness to help with the spring cleaning!!!
