My favourite things

This card has some of  my favourite things on it especially every shade of purple from lilac to aubergine. The image is one of my fave WOJ ones, papers are Henbury Lane. I distressed and inked all the edges but couldn't bring myself to tear them as I love them too much. The swirls were cut with a Sizzix die, Butterfly is Flora Doodles, raffia lace from Quixotic Paperie. I love making these 8" x 8" cards as they give so much scope for embellishments.
