Sarah Kay ChallengeWeek 9 'purple & green' & Papertake Weekly Sketch Challenge #10

Okay, can you guess this stamp is getting its use? Well mmmm. the answer is yes.
I think I might have to ask nicely for a stamped image or two. ;)

The backing papers are from summertime designs( I've recently discovered this website and they are freebie downloads), the lilac/purple is from funky fairy inspirations website (free downloads).
I've decided to use the zig-zag purple thread on this card as the sewing machine has a more or less permanent position now adays, the sarah kay sweet lily image is watercoloured with co-ordinating colours but this time I thought cut round it and lift it to use it another way and I've decoupaged her pretty purple ribbon too. It may not be too clear in the pictures.
The sentiment I've hand stamped with black stazon using Melissa Frances clear acrylic stamps mounted onto card to give it some strength and foam pads underneath. The purple lacey ribbon - I love so much as it was passed on to by a relative. Three green sequins from cheap shop in town with silver gems in middle and some crystal dust to give a little sparkle. Finish!!!!...........For now!

And yes , you might be thinking why has she put 1st.... because ..I shall be attending a little girls 1st birthday party soon. Hope you like :)
