Purple Haze ...

Hi Everybody,

I found this lovely shade of purple ribbon in my "Stash" and of course it had to feature in a very pretty card.

I tied it into a triple bow and added one of my Primark pieces to the centre.

I also used one in the centre of the flower and so this is a very glitzy card.

I also found the fabric Dragon flies in my bit box and thought that they would look very pretty on the card too.

I added one to the top and one inside to compliment the design.
The dies I have used are from Sue Wilson and  I cannot add photos of the dies yet as they are relatively new ... but the collections are available from   JGD Crafts

I have used. Seville from the Spanish Collection for the back ground  and topped it with San Francisco from the Californian collection.

The card I use is from  Papermill Direct  and is the White Linen at 270 gsm.

It makes an excellent base for my designs and I use it for the layers too.

The sentiment is from Crafters Companion and is one from the Sentimentals Range

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  sparkled up with fine glitter from Glitter Magic

The Diamante around the centre piece is from Want2Scrap  and it is the one that matches  Spellbinders Labels Twenty and it just happens to compliment this shape too.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
