Purple and Yellow Colour Scheme

Before I start, I have to just share an alternative title to this post. Mr Starstuck seems to think that I used "fancy names" for the colours on my last inspiration post, and wanted to know why I was using "normal ones" this time!! So in an attempt to keep him happy, I did toy with the idea of using the title "Cadbury and Canary"...for about half a second!

Sooo....post number 2 on colour schemes, and this one focuses on purple and yellow. My best friend got married just over a year ago and chose purple as her colour. She incorporated several shades of purple and lilac, which worked beautifully together, but right at the very beginning of her planning she toyed with the idea of using sunflowers with the purple. Ever since then i've had a bit of a "thing" about purple and yellow together, it just seems like such a vibrant, uplifting and fun combination.

So here is my take on the colour scheme - I hope you like!
