Purple Flower Power

I don't know if anyone noticed on my side bar that I have joined a new Design Team, I'm thrilled to have been chosen to join the girls over at the Crafty Purple Frog.


I've been looking forward to my first challenge and being able to work with the gorgeous artwork by Ching-Chou Kuik.  All the Decoupage and Pyramage sheets are available from The Crafty Purple Frog.  A set of beautiful papers has now been added  to the shop featuring the artwork of Christine Schultz, they are gorgeous and great value, do pop over and have a look
.

This is my first card as part of the Design Team and I have used two of my favourites - purple and decoupage for this fortnights challenge which is 'Flower Power'


I used the gorgeous image 'Night Glimmer', it is also available in Pyramage format.

This is the inside of my card, I have decorated it to complement the front

Wow, the purple is fabulous! I find purple really hard to work with because too much often looks overpowering, but it's a hard colour to complement. I love the inside of the card too.
