It's Blooming PURPLE!

It's Saturday and you know that means - 
New Challenge at Just Us Girls
I'm Hosting our Photo Challenge and 
loved this one below on Pinterest.
Why? It's purple -  my favourite colour,
and my birthday coming up.
But my card is for my BFF's Birthday
which is just a few days before mine.
Oh and it is Spring here so there will be
some beautiful flowers blooming soon.


A few things to mention about my card - 
the majority of the dies used here
are from my early birthday package -
 she knows me well - couldn't wait so got them early
and have used quite a few of them already just not all of them!
The pretty paper was from her a few years ago
and blends in perfectly - Bazzill card stock.
The three gems on the flowers were also in my package.
Of course you knew the flowers were coloured with
 Lindy's Magical's!
The background dp is from my stash, stenciled lightly.
It looked rather dull so added 
Tim's Distress Glaze for a bit of sheen.
The tub is from STAMPlorations Fluttery Stamp/Die set
I cut across the top to tuck in my flowers.
Added some Art Alchemy Waxes for added colour
and finished with crochet cotton bow.

There are such beautiful cards over on Our Blog
from the Talented Loll - our September Guest
and the Amazing Girls who - like me share their creativity
with you weekly. Check them out AND
hope you join in this weeks challenge with yours.
You could be my Chic of the Week!
As it is the last Saturday in September we bid farewell
to our Super Talented Guest Loll.
It's been such a pleasure to have her share her
works of art with us this month.

Thanks for dropping in and leaving your kind comments.
