YEP! the Blue & purple color combo, along with the gold glitter..... & NO I this wasn't 1 of those staged photos... LOL! Even though I will admit I have taken some photos to match the paper's I've been wanting to work with in the past...   LOL! This photo was taken on Chloee's 9th birthday this year!! I always try to get a family photo when we are celebrating a birthday....

 My background is created with Lumnarte Snapdragon & Ocean wave watercolors... & then of course some stamping!! 
 Green Tara flowers, The Greatest View - Flair Badges - 2013 which can be Purchased at The Scrapbook Store
 With the Twiddleybitz Large Fine Fern Leaves chipboard I've painted it with the Snapdragon watercolor then added some gold glitter to the tips.... 
 Twiddleybitz have some GREAT trinkets & this is 1 of them the Flower Embellishment, which I've added a sequin too....
