I 'LOVE' Purple

Hi and Welcome to today's post.
It's Saturday so it's Just Us Girls Day

The heading says it all for me
and Host this week is Carol
(ps she may not be aware that it is my
favourite colour)

The lovely purple floral image is 
STAMPlorations Large French Marigold
heat embossed with Zing Metallic Silver.
I fussy cut and popped it after smooching some
watercolour paper with Tim's Wilted Violet
and Iridescent Medium.
My white background is embossed with
Kaisercraft Bricks.
The die behind the flower is cut from silver paper
 with the Textured Weather Die also from Kaisercraft.
My silver love die sentiment is from CUTplorations.

Pop over and see what our April Guest Karren
and the Jugheads created for your inspiration
then join us in the Gallery.

PS 'cause I love purple I have another card made
and will post it in a few days as a Reminder!

Thanks for dropping in
