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.
I haven't had much time to enter challenges lately, but decided I need to get back into doing challenges and this card seems to fit quite a few this week so here goes:
