Sweetness in Purple

Happy Monday!

We had a great weekend here, lots of sunshine and relaxation too. I hope you're weekend was nice. Today it's not very nice outside, so I've been working and then have plans to stamp this afternoon. Hopefully, the Spring time weather will return soon. Unfortunately, I think it will be awhile, we're suppose to get rain for the next few days. Perfect crafting weather though!

I was still in the Spring time mood when I created this card. I used a sweet new Magnolia from the Hoppy Easter collection. I don't have this one yet, but Erin was kind enough to stamp me some. I think she's adorable and I love her long hair. Thanks Erin!

I colored the image with copics and added some white gel pen highlights. Then I cut her out and used foam tape to pop her up. The basket also has some flower soft added to the flowers for more texture. I went with the sketch from this week's Magnolia Down Under challenge and used some BG Wisteria papers. I love these soft pretty purples and greens. I stitched with the sewing machine, my new favorite embellishment! And then added some Primas and roses and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps punched with the oval punches and tagged with ribbon. This card also fits the challenge at Secret Crafter of Spring.

Thanks for dropping over today. I'm off to craft a bit, I hope you have a nice afternoon too.

Happy Stamping,
