Moving Along with the Times - Purple Haze

This week the theme of the challenge over at Moving Along with the Times was set by Jan Small. Come along and join us as I'm sure it's a theme that you will all love - Purple Haze, which means you can use as many shades of purple as you wish.

This is the first time I've used one of my 7 x 7 cards, by Craft UK, that I bought at Ally Pally in September! I used Crafter's Companion purple card as the base mat and then embossed a pale lilac pearlised card, from I know not where, with a CC embossalicious folder. The image was coloured with my Promarkers and she is by Saturated Canary. After cutting into a rectangle I edged with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. The fancy scroll at the bottom is a lace die by Sue Wilson and the banner and number 2 are both by Joanna Sheen. They are cut in bright purple Mirri card.

My eyes are much improved, not perfect but I can just about live with them like this, thank you all for your best wishes.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafting from the Heart - Always Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Always Anything Goes
Crafting with Dragonflies - Birthday Card
