Good morning
I received a request for a birthday card last night, so I started working on it straight away... and for some reason I found myself rummaging through purple - purple papers, purple ribbons... :-)
Here is the result, a girlie and soft square card, sort of vintage looking, all very purple!!
The vintage image is from Digital Two, coloured with Letraset Promarkers; the beautiful purple paper is from the Capsule Collection, by Tina Higgins, Papermania; Lilac and purple cardstock; Nellie's multi frame; Fiskars corner punch; lilac ribbon from my own stash; I am afraid I can't remember where I got the sentiment from.

Some challenges:
Stampin for the weekend - Shabby/vintage
Your next stamp challenge - Anything goes
Die Cut Dreams - Sweet Little girl
Daisy Doodles - Keep it simple
Paper Romance - Clean and Simple

Leave me a comment if you are passing by!
