It's a purple card

FOURTH POST TODAY!
I hope you have time to check out the other 3 posts today. I decided to post my cards separately today as it makes linking much easier.The laptop is still going with a bit of jiggling on the lead. We bought a netbook yesterday so as soon as we get that up and running and everything backed up I'll get the laptop fixed.

I haven't made so many purple cards lately so I felt the need to get these gorgeous Henbury Lane papers out again. I used a new MS corner punch which is part of a PATP set and the faithful doily punch on the border. The image is Dahlia form the Greeting Farm. I just love her but I do find colouring her hair a challenge. She is coloured with Promarlers of course with some shine added with some glitter and a Sakura clearstar pen. I made the flower from some papers scraps and EK retro flower punches, spacer, brad and charm. I really like punched flowers, should do it more.
