Pretty Purple

Hi Bloggers

I'm here with my 2nd make for
and I have to say I am very happy with this card

I have 3 or 4 of the Woodware Bubble stamps and have only ever used 1 once so decided it was time to play with a new one
Firstly I embossed a square of white card with a dotty embossing folder & decided seeing as I would have a lot of embellies coming out from the card base, I would use the card the debossed side showing.
I stamped the image using memento black ink pad and filled in 3 of the bubbles with my quickie glue pen & used a beautiful rich purple foil to fill them. I filled the rest with candi, buttons, dew drops, pearls & gems. The leaves and stalk are coloured with pro markers & I mounted the finished image onto pearlescent purple paper.
I couldn't find a ribbon that I liked and that was luxurious enough to match the purple colours so I used a thicker piece of lilac organza ribbon with a thinner piece of purple striped organza ribbon on the top. Seeing as I still cant tie a decent bow my trusty bow-maker came to the rescue again and I got a pretty decent bow.

Don't forget that the July Challenge is still open, ends 31st which is my birthday, on the Facebook page here & you can win £15 to spend in the Foil Play online store.

Happy Crafting
