Amethyst with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge

Come join the FUN!! Grab one of our HMFMC Buttons and link it back to us!
Good morning to you all
Now as you know I decided at the beginning of the year to take a little back seat from my HM creations, however I sat quietly and coloured this lovely up over the week and yesterday created a lovely Mother's Day card with it so here I am in my "floater position" to say

Today sees the next challenge at the 

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge 

so what is it I hear you asking well here you go for them details

Our super talented Teamie Donna Hanley, is hosting and has chosen a color theme;

Amethyst, White plus 1 other COLOR

We have some 
We are very proudly Sponsored by...

We are very excited about this fabulous sponsored prize from Simon Says Stamp. They are generously giving away a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of some of their Premium Dye Ink Pads to one very lucky player!

*** Also proudly welcoming back a GREAT SPONSOR****
  "A surprise package of embellishments from Pizzazz Aplenty worth $15.00. 
(Due to increased postage costs, the winner for this prize must reside in the USA)
okay after all that excitement you just want to see I am sure, so here it is but don't forget to hop over and see the rest of those beautiful creations to inspire you.
I don't have much in the line of purples in my stash, not normally a colour I favour but after a good old rummage I found quite a bit.
 So I went with Amethyst and white with a little lavendar thrown in.  The base layer is a deep purple, the papers I am sure you will recognise as I cannot remember.  I used a Marianne die I won to frame the image, a nestie I bought from my Teamie Christine, a Joy edge butterfly die, some flowers from stash and those pearls, frantage, pearl heart and pearl medallion from the Hobby House.
The bow for those that are interested, the ribbon came from Lidl, I adore their gift ribbon it holds its shape perfectly, so sits so beautifully as a triple bow.

A clos up of the image coloured in copics, he is hiding his head slightly in shame for mucking her up with the soil :)
