Birthday Purples with the Wild Rose Studio and some Candy

Good morning to you all

Back as promised with that front cover card from

Papercraft Essentials


Now when Dulcie told me the theme and colours I was just in my element as it is all purples and female birthday's which I have to say works so well with the WRS products identified to use.  So I loved working on them.

So here is the front cover card to inspire you to pop out and purchase your copy

Dies - Floral Frame
Papers - Bluebell
Sentiment - Birthday Greetings

The base layer is a lovely middle range purple, which picks up the purples on the image an those papers.  The die has been layered with another die behind to make it pop off the page.  I wrapped that lush purple ribbon around the corners of the card, before adding those gorgeous Hobby House embellishments, the pearls, the rhinestone flourish and the fancy button. I distressed the edges of the image through the die with TH DI in shaded lilac

Here is that close up of the image for you coloured in copics

Now onto that publication candy, don't forget that there is some more on the inspiration blog too.
