Purple Wednesday

Well I got a chance to do some crafting tonight! Seems like weeks since I had time to do anything creative! I decided to make a couple of purple themed cards. I also used some of my new mini messages from Craftwork Cards - they are great!



I made this card for a one of my oldest and dearest friends. She is waiting for some good news and I wanted to send her something to let her know my thoughts are with her. The base papers are from Papermania purple designer pack layered with Papermania card in dark purple and lilac. I added a purple prima flower secured with a Papermania flower brad. I added 4 purple gems in the each corner and a Craftwork Cards mini message.



For this card, I wanted to try out paper piecing - so Cakeabella's apron is done in this way. I also did the cake in purple card and added a bit of sparkle with my Sakura pen. I coloured the rest of her with coloured pencils. The base is purple Brazzil Basics and daisy paper by Scissor Sisters. I added a purple prima flower with a button in the middle. Lastly a cute flutter message by sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
