Purple Power

One of team members just got married and we are all so happy for her. If you would like to join the hop from the start go to the Creative Card Crew challenge blog. If you came from blog then you are in the right place.
Congatulation Jan! I wish you and your dashing groom all the happiness that your hearts can hold. You have so many exciting things going on in your live and we are all so happy for you!
 I am the end of the hop. You can find pictures of the lovely couple on Jan's blog.


Purple Power - Today's challenge at Creative Card Crew is Purple and lots of it! Purple is such a popular color, so many of you will love this challenge.

All of the papers are pieces that were in my purple scrap drawer. I love it when that happens, but regrettably I have no clue as to the manufacture is.

We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish who gave us some images to play with. This one is Katie Computer Gal. I think she is adorable and you can get her here.
I colored Katie with Copic's and added some Stickles to her hair ties, sleeves and pant cuffs.

My flower was in my flower bin, I think it was part of a stem at one time. I used a brad in the center and added some Stickles to it.
The leaves are from Pizzazz Aplenty. I coiled some purple wire around a paintbrush and the swirl is a MD die.
My top sentiment is Hot Off the Press and the bottom is Autumn Leaves.

My card for Jan used an image by The Paper Shelter. I used papers from my black scrap drawer. I think they are The Paper Studio and DCWV.

My flower is Creative Impressions with a sparkly brad.
I had to add a feather as Jan wore one in her hair for her wedding.

Sentiment is Hot Off the Press punched with a SU punch and I added 2 pearls made with my silver chrome pearl pen.
