Penny Black/Purple passion

I think I went over the top with purple on this card but hey ho I think we all have days when we go overboard. It's one of those cards you either love or hate  but I cannot make up my mind. With Spring in mind, I chose my image and background paper. I added 2 die cuts, some Jute, a ribbon flower strip, some Petaloo flowers and 3 buttons with twine knots. I have posted it as a reminder of the " One for the boys" challenge on the Penny Black and More blog. You have a chance to win one of the prizes listed below if you enter the challenge. For all the details pop over to the blog. There are several prizes up for grabs this and every month but remember NO DIGIS 
I have entered my card into a few challenges listed below.
