Purple Haze

Ladybug crafts challenge are looking for a card inspired by a song title. Well purple is my fav colour and so I chose "Purple Haze" by Jimi Hendrix to inspire this New Year card. We have Winestool Niki sitting up at the top dressed all in purple - using promarkers, next to her is a chandelier courtesy of Jak Heath and at the bottom a 2011 freebie image from The Crafters Digital Art Center. The backing details are from the Debbi Moore cdrom floral fantasy.
I spent most of Christmas day in a pleasant haze due to my MIL insisting I have a large Sherry to warm me up before lunch! Then we had Martini Asti with the meal as OH was driving and MIL doesn't drink a lot you can imagine who had the rest. MIL cooked and wouldn't let me wash up so had a lovely time. Then when we got home we opened a bottle of pink champagne! You can see where the inspiration for this card came from now can't you LOL!
I'm entering it into:-
Ladybug crafts challenge-inspired by a song
Caardvarks-mono card (their last ever challenge)
I love promarkers - anything goes
Crafts and Me-anything goes
Simon Says-anything goes
Moving Along with the Times-anything goes but no Xmas cards!
Catch the bug - feature the New Year
Sweet stampin - celebrations
Die cut Dreams - girly
