Ring a Roses


Back in purple mode again today - I do try to vary the colours I use, but sometimes the call is just too strong as it was here! :o)
This is one of those happy cards that just seemed to work from the off and the design came together really well. It was inspired by several challenges which helps I think. I'll list those later in the post so that I won't ramble as much. The image is the Rose Trellis digi stamp from Crafty Ann's. The main bp, ribbon, buckle and faux peel off are also from Crafty Ann's. The scalloped 'silk' paper is from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD1. Although the photo doesn't show it too well, the scalloped paper, ribbon and buckle and the topper have all been a raised using pinflair glue gel. 5 small pearls finish it off.

These are the challenges that have inspired me:

Thank you for dropping by today and I hope your day is a good one.
