Purple burst

Afternoon All

Thought I had best blog this card now and not 
tomorrow as planned as I have been working on this today
and see that Allsorts Challenge closes in 22 hours time !!!

So as not to miss it here it is 

I made my own background papers using Ken Oliver 
Burst paints.

Used a section to stamp the image.
coloured in with a "bit" of Burst paint and cosmic shimmer 
watercolour paints.

Mounted topper onto black card and then onto background splat purple card 
and added a purple bow. 

Hope you like it I am sure it would be great for any 
girl who loves purple !!!

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for your visit this afternoon

Look forward to seeing you again
