The Colour Purple...

Hello Magnolia fans....
Another card with the cutest girl in town....Tilda!

I have made this card and have used it in the Magnolia Stamp Lovers..(The colour Purple) challenge... http://magnoliastamplovers.blogspot.com/

I hope the photo looks ok I am not too good with a camera, it is coming out pinky...However I promise you it's Purple!!
Although purple is not a colour I use that often, I was not short of purple supplies when making this card.
For the background I have chosen a sheet of textured purple cardstock from the DCWV Latte stack. To give interest I have cut the corner with my "w" shaped punch, and I have used this on the paper too. The beautiful paper used is from a sampler kit from Websters Papers...called "Nature's Storybook, this sheet is Violette Wings, and is the most beautiful paper I have seen for a long time. These sheets are 12x12.
This is where you can see them and get inspiration.

I have never used a little doily in my work before, so thought this was the perfect card to try it out on, I am really pleased with the result. I added ink to the edges of it and then little pearl gems.
My Magnolia image is the lovely Jam Tilda, I love the way her little hands are in her lap, so cute, and I have coloured her with Pro-markers.
I cut flowers and leaves with a Nellie punch, and from my stash I found the lovely single stem purple rose. The card is finished with a border of DCWV latte stack card in green and purple and I have used my MS punch on the boarder. The purple ribbons are from my stash. The lovely "Treasure" stamp is a Hero Art stamp.
You know what they say?....Purple is the new black!!
