Purple Birthday

This is my second post today. Please scroll down for my Harry Potter double layout.

Yes, it's a very purple card using one of the gorgeous Simply Sassy girls from Sugar Nellie. The papers are Papermania Capsule. The sentiment and image have been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I used a Sakura purple glaze pen on the sentiment too. I've used DI Dusty Concode around the die cut image. The rosebuds and metal corners are from The Hobby House, cherry blossom flowers from Wild Orchid, punched leaves using a MS fern punch. The lace was a gift from my lovely Totally Gorjuss teamie Hazel.
As the challenge at Saturated Canary is May flowers I wanted to use flowers which genuinely are out in May. I also want to enter this into the anything goes challenge at Wild Orchid and The Sugar Bowl.
