Blue and....... purple

This was made for a swap on a yahoo group I belong to with the theme 'blue and .... another colour' so me being me, opted for purple :)
Image is another of the gorgeous adorables from Sugar Nellie coloured with promarkers, I absolutely love these images, they're beautiful. Papers are a selection from stash, used the cuttlebug 'rose' embossing folder for the blue background then used a Martha Stewart punch along the bottom and added some little gems to the flower centres. Swirls were cut from one of my sizzix dies then embossed and gems added. Flowers and butterfly were from my stash, but had to glitter the flowers with stickles of course, and the butterfly is coloured with promarkers to make it blend in a bit better as it was too pale lol.

Amy's birthday card

Hazel asked me to make a card for her friend Amy who was 14 last week - she said to do something in purple and black - the kind of thing Hazel would like lol. Well, straight off thought of the Kenny K images :) Coloured the image with promarkers, printed off purple & black papers - think they're from crafty cardmaking and Shabby Princess but can't remember exactly. Cut the circles and flowers from matching card, added some gems, glitter and a little charm.... and away we go lol. Apparently its the best card Amy's seen and she's keeping it forever lol - wish all teenagers were so easily pleased
