Pretty...................................In Purple

Here is my Purple card for the monthly Lily-Boo Too Challenge, which I used one of the Girls from 'Here Come the Girls' Collection. I have been trying to post this blog for two days now, but life has got in the way so I thought I had better take a few minutes to post this. I don't know about you but I'm finding it hard to take my pictures before the light goes, now that the clocks have changed.
This month's challenge was to use the colour........................PURPLE, although I have slipped some white and skin tones into this one. This card is a gate fold creation with a few touches of bling, because every girl needs a bit of sparkle. Sorry for the lack of pictures but as I said I have been having problems with getting good picture........I know any excuse huh!!!
Card Step by Step
  1. Create a gatefold card (using Purple Papermania 12x12 card & Fiskars Trimmer)
  2. Using Purple gingham paper I stuck some to the front (paper from my stash)
  3. Cut my pre-coloured image into an Oval (using Fiskars Shape Cutter)
  4. Matt & layer image, using edging scissors & different card stock (I used different card stock & Fiskars edging scissors to matt & layer my image)
  5. Cut three lengths of card stock & punched them (using Stampin Up Eyelet Border)
  6. I then layer these punched lengths (Purple, White, Purple) and stuck and tied a length of white ribbon to them and then stuck them down to only the left handside of the card, due to opening in the middle
  7. I then stuck my matted & layered image to the left handside of the card
  8. Next I used various embellishments, which I had altered to different shades of Purple and stuck them on the right handside of my card front around the arch of my oval image (chipboard circles, white stick on gems, sparkly gems from Poundland, paper roses from The Range)
  9. Lastly I used sparkly silver letters & corners to finish off the card and then I mounted the letters onto Purple & White card & rounded the corners (Silver letters & corners from Anita's range)
I have rambled on for long enough now. Thank you for all your kind comments lately, they are much appreciated. Take care. Nettie.xx
