Our Creative Corner - Purple

Good morning, it's an early one for me, I just couldn't get back to sleep, so I've been surfing for a while waiting for the boys to wake up.

Here's a card I made yesterday afternoon to enter into this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner where the theme is Purple. For some reason I'm not particularly drawn to purple (I prefer orange!) but I thought I would give it a go and I'm pleased with the result.

Here's what i used to make this card:

Stamp: from Elzybells Art Stamps
Colouring Medium: Prismacolour Premier Pencils
Tools: Nestabilities "Labels" and "Scallop Rectangles"; EK Success "Corner Adorner" punch; Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder
Other: Glamour Dust (love the stuff!)

Well the household appears to be waking up so I had better get started with my day.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking a look and thank you to everyone who has left me such wonderful comments recently - I love to read them and they make me so happy.

What a gorgeous card using a super cute image that you have coloured perfectly.

For saying you are not drawn to this colour you have used it really well.

Have a great day.

Love Jules xx

What an early bird you are Clare. Still it must be nice to get some peace before the house is awake. This is a beautiful card. Such a pretty image and I love purple. We are the complete opposite, I find orange really difficult!!!

Hello Clare
Sorry I've not been over for a while :D I'm here now. I really like this little cute card of yours! Such a sweet little bear! Lovely colours and for someone who's not that keen on the colour purple, you've worked with it so well! Love the details and I have to agree, glamour dust is fab!

I've left a little something on my blog for you for when your next hopping. Hope you dont mind.
