Having just arrived home from a short break in the Cotswolds I saw that Kaboodle http://kaboodledoodles.blogspot.com/ has a great challenge this week. They are being sponsored by The character Cafe and the challenge is "Anything goes plus Purple". I love Purple as I am sure many other bloggers do, so I had to get cracking and make a card for the challenge.
I was going for a kind of modern oriental look including the colour Purple and this is the card I produced. I used a 6x6 designer paper from a pad for the background and the image is from a Craft Studio CD. I did the usual matting and layering and used fancy ribbon, Pearls, a Tassle, Flourishes I cut using my wizard and four tiny diamonte stones for the corners. I love the card and have a special person in mind who will love it.
I have entered other challenges listed below.
