Birthday card

On Friday it is my brother's girlfriend's birthday and her favourite colour is purple so I got out anything that was purple in my craft drawers and eventually came up with this and a pile of stash out everywhere!! I think my next job will be tidy up so that I have somewhere to sleep tonight!

I used some purple card I've had in my drawer for years (I think it came from WHSmiths about 4 years ago!), patterned paper from Papermania Vibrant Colossal designer paper pack, Papermania rub ons, Craft Planet lavender glitter glue, I hand drew the cake and cocktail and coloured in with pencil crayons, flower eyelets from The Stamp Doctor (which were green so I coloured them with a purple Whispers permanent pen), piece of purple ribbon which I'm not sure where it came from, and finally I used some 3d foam pads to make the middle bit stand out.

Thanks for looking xx

Hi Sarah,
Great card!
I must say I prefer you as a blonde! I wouldn't have recognised you as the same person with the dark hair on the Docrafts site!

What a fab card for a purple-a-holic! I'm glad that I am not the only one that works in complete chaos!! If I haven't made a mess it just doesn't feel right!

Love Sarita xxx
