Purple At Live & Love Crafts

Hi everyone, me again, I'm here with my card for Live and Love Crafts, this month our theme is 'Purple', those of you that come here often will know that I loooveee purple, when Sandy asked for ideas, I bet you can guess that this one was mine :)

I've used Go Kreate dies to make the card, I like these to be a decent size so I've used Maja Designs 12 x 12 8th April. This new collection is fab, there are so many purple designs in here, I was so pleased when I saw this collection. I've distressed the edges with walnut stain ink.

I've used the wrapping that Sandy puts around the seam binding for the tag, I've made a double bow with English Lavender shabby seam binding.

I've masked Princess Pea Tilda onto the mattress and then coloured them in with distress markers and reinkers. I've added sparkle with glamour dust and used aged wine frantage around the edges.

The links are at the end of the post.
