Sparkle at The Crafty Purple Frog

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all well today? Glad to report my IBS attack was only a one day-er, phew! Back to (almost) normal today, except I have D no1 home with a sore belly (I blame the MacDonalds from last night for that!)

So, to my card today, which is my DT creation for The Crafty Purple Frog. This week our theme is 'Sparkle'. Who can resist blinging up their creations??!! I chose to use a pyrimage sheet with the lovely Northern Most Serenity image on it for my card. You can find it HERE.

I went for a mostly white colour theme to go with the image, except for a wee bit of purple in the shape of the backing paper (very faint tint) and some smudgy inky edges. Apart from those bits everything else is white. (even if the photo does make it look a bit purple)

The flowers, brads, ribbon and gems are all from the stash. The silky leaves are recycled from my old wedding head-dress. Had to find a use for it, as it is over 20 years old and gathering dust in the wardrobe. So I dismantled it and am using up the bits on my creations. (Don't tell the hubby!) I have splodged stickles on the image and on the flowers, although you can't see that very well with these photos. Naff light up here in Scotland at the mo, so apologies folks!

So, if you fancy the chance winning some fabulous prizes, head over to The Crafty Purple Frog Challenges and get entering!!

Hi Teri,
This card is enchanting. Beautiful image, fabulous papers and punched borders and the flowers are fabulous. (I don't know if I could dismantle my headress - but now you have planted the idea)
Hope your daughter feels better soon.
