Mostly Purples

Lots of purple on this card without a whole lot of extras.  I had intended to enter this in the challenge at Karen's Doodles and didn't get it posted in time but I did find a couple that I think it will work for and those are:

Allsorts - "Free & Easy for the month of July"
The challenge will be the same all month but each week there will be new sponsors and winners so be sure you head on over and play along.

I'm really cutting it close on this one...lol  (2 + flowers & leaves, 2 punched edges, 2 red birds, 2 + DP)

Card Deets:
  • Digital DP (sorry but I don't remember where I got it)
  • Image from Karen's Doodles (Pretty Princess) colored with Copics, stickles & spic pen accents
  • MS Scalloped Border Punch and Branch Punch
  • WOC Flowers
  • MS Butterfly punched out with vellum paper and grape stickles added
Thanks a bunch for stopping by and I sure hope you have the time to leave me a comment.  I think I'm caught up on my visiting except for today and that's next on the agenda. Amongst the household repairs taking place I've just quit doing whatever I was doing and am back to blogging and creating.  When there is only so much one can do it's time to let go and get with the program and do the things we most love to do in life.  The older you get the faster time goes and I'm through stressing with things beyond my control. 

Almost the weekend again so hope you all have some fun plans and enjoying the season where ever you are.
"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)
