Some more purple!!

Hi all!

I think I am seeing a bit of a colour theme going on here with purple birthday cards lol - its one of my favourite colours!!

This is a very very late birthday card that should have been sent last week but I had the awful stomach bug that weekend so am just getting round to doing it now - ooops!

I have used:

  • promarkers
  • LOTV I baked a cake stamp and circle sentiment stamp
  • Martha Stewart butterfly and new border punch (my naughty treat from QVC for passing both my math and education essays - woop woop!!)
  • Docrafts Henbury Lane purple dot paper
  • Circle and circle scallop nesties
  • glitter and gems

Bit of a close up lol

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Will hopefully be back soon!!

  4. Hey Racheal!! :)
    This is sooo pretty- I'm sure your friend will think it was worth the wait!! :) Hope you're feeling better now, too :) And there's nothing wrong with lots of purple!!lol It's is my fav colour, too, so it does tend to creep in to my cardmaking *quite* often!!lol Teal's a close second, though (as even a v quick glance in my wardrobe would prove!! ;) ) but crafting supplies don't seem so easy to come by in nice tealy colours- though I have just found a good teal shade of PM so there might be more of that, too!! :)
    Love the butterfly and gems, too!! And your cute image... don't think my avoidance of the LOTV site is gonna last much longer...!!! ;) :)
    hugs, Rachel x
