A touch of purple

I was asked by a friend to make a 65th birthday card, the only clue I was given was that the recipient likes purple. That’s not a problem for me as I love the colour myself.


There’s just a touch of it I think you’ll find. lol Coupled with my other fave at the moment pale lime green.


SAM_0464I’ve used, once again, the two little mice from Penny Black and coloured them with Promarkers. The doiley is a Marianne Creatables die cut and the scalloped mat is a Nestie. The sentiment is computer generated.SAM_0465I’ve used lots of fabric flowers with paper flowers and brads for the centres. Organza and shiny ribbon finish it all off.SAM_0469








The insert uses a background and images from MCS, but i’m not sure which cd they come from.


I must remember to get Sallie to bring the mouse stamp with her when she visits again as I have now run out of the ones I had stamped. It’s a lovely little image, so useful for many occasions.

I absolutely adore purple, but find it quite a hard colour to use in crafting for some reason. You've done a lovely job using it here I bet she loved this card
