Purple Birthday

Hi everyone!

Im back to show you the birthday card I made for my friend Nicola's 21st Birthday which was before we broke up from Uni.

I am mega pleased with the way this one turned out (I seem to impress myself lately lol) and Nic thought it was gorgeous!

I used:
  • my new LOTV Fairy on Tiptoe stamp
  • Coloured with my Promarkers
  • new Creative Cottage digi papers
  • Wild Orchid Crafts roses
  • Nestibilities dies
  • Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
  • Crystal Stickles
  • And a printed sentiment

 I practised for ages and ages to get the colours to blend properly and got there in the end!

I would like to enter this card into the folowing challenges :
Lili of the valley thursday challenge - new beginnings ( I used my new LOTV stamp,new digi papers and tried blending the promarkers together)

Well for some reason I volunteered to have everyone over at my house for New Years Day instead of everybody going to Mams house so me and the bf have A LOT of cleaning, tidying and cooking to get done! Hope you all have a good new year and Ill hopefully be back soon :)
