Okay - I Caved In!!!!!

It didn't take long for me to cave in and use the purple and black papers that I fought with myself over in my last post did it????
Incidentally, the papers are proper purple - honestly!! I don't know why, but my camera always makes purple look blue! (It is, of course, the camera and not my photographic skills!)
This card is for our GD who becomes a teenager tomorrow and this image from Mo Manning sums her (and I suspect every other 13 year old girl) up to perfection. I've coloured the image with promarkers and cut it out with a nestie label die.
The dps are from the new purple & black collection. I used one of the blank tickets from the Tickets Sheet so that I could add my own sentiment to it and overlaid it onto lilac from the polished stone pastels collection before printing it off. Finally, I embellished with satin ribbon that I coloured with black promarker and added a faux buckle slider from the embellishments sheet that I coloured on the computer and added stickles to. The papers, tickets and embellishments sheet are all available from Crafty Ann's.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
  • Our Creative Corner - the lovely sketch
  • D2P - colour of the rainbow (definitely purple!!!! lol!)
  • Incy Wincy - faux it up (ribbon slider buckle)
  • CCT - Make your own (no shop bought embellishments)
  • C4C - Birthday
