Purple - lots of it!

If you visit my blog regularly you will know I have a love of purple and shades thereof. So when I saw the challenge on Cupcake Crafts - The Dark Side I was there, because they want to see purple and black. I've used a digital image from Crafts and Me called Devonne. I've seen her hair coloured in various tones and just wanted to try it myself, bit extreme for the first effort I know! I've even embossed the sentiment with purple embossing powder.
I'd also like to enter the card into these challenges-
Digital Tuesday challenge - people images
Crafty Sentiments designs - Happy Birthday
Cardmadfairy - lots of layers
One Stop Craft -girly
Ooh la la - punches and dies
One stitch at a time - punch it
Now for the new colour of the walls in my bedroom.
Yeah - purple! I had a pale shade of lavender before. It was so pale that when I put this colour over the top it looked white. What I would like to do now is cut some black vinyl peel offs with my silhouette to reflect the black on the blind.
