It's a Purple Happy Birthday!

Well we finally got a break from the 100 degree temps. After 44 days of 100 or more it only got up to 98 yesterday. The cloud cover was nice but we sure could use some rain now.

Enough of my ramblings and let me show you the card that I made last night. I just love the color purple and all the different hues of it. So, here is another purple card. This is Candy Pip by Sugar Nellie. I thought she was adorable. She is colored with Copic Sketch markers (E00, E01, E87, R20, V000, V04, V06, Y21, Y23, YG03, YG13, YG17, YG91). The CS is by Bazzill and the DP is Bo Bunny's Garden Girls Wild Flowers. I also used Shimmer Sheetz in Purple Iris and it is embossed with Craft Concepts Wings. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes and it is stamped with Orchid Opulence also from Stampin Up. The sentiment is punched out with Stampin Up's Oval and Scalloped Oval punches. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities in the Circle and Scalloped Circle with the image. The flowers are punched out with a punch from the Punch Bunch. I used the CS and DP to make them. The buttons are from my stash. The leaves are punched out with a punch from the Punch Bunch also with paper from my scrap stash.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
