Purple Fantasy

Purple Fantasy - Michelle Perkett is sponsoring us at Creative Card Crew and it gave me a chance to color one of her images again. I had forgotten how lovey and fun to color they are. Michelle is giving one lucky winner her Lily image. Lily was the top pick of my team. I have to admit that Lily is a joy to color.
My DP is from my scrap drawer. The card stock was embossed with a Quik Cuts folder and I made the pin. I have really gotten into pins lately. They are so easy to create and I love how light plays on them. The stick pin itself, I bought from our last fortnight challenge sponsor Pizzazz Aplenty. She has the best prices around. The corner scrolls were cut with CB corner die and glittered with a fine glitter.
The pansy I found flying loose around a craft store parking lot. It had been pulled loose and was just being whipped every which-way in the wind. I pulled the center our and replaces it with a sparkly brad and added the leaves and scrolled wire.
My image is Ashely by Michelle Perkett and she is colored with Copics. I added some fine glitter to her wings.
