And another purple card

I don't know why but I couldn't seem to resist making purple cards yesterday. Thanks to all those of you who compliment me on my colouring. I am still a novice with the shading and I find this image particularly difficult as so much of the image is her dress. I adore her though so will keep trying to improve. She is coloured with PMs and highlighted with Sakura Stardust pen on her hem and purple glitter on her bow. The background paper is from Debbi Moore, the other was a freebie. She fitted the nesties so well. It's the first time I have had an image and card large enough to use the biggest rectangle.

I love the detail on this card. The glitter card swirls, holly leaves and snowflakes are Sizzix. I added some fab sparkly Prima flowers, embossed the snowflakes and added spacers and brads.

The card was made using the lovely sketch at Moving along with the times where they are also looking for embossing on your card.
