A Big Happy Birthday to the Purple Princess !

Today is the birthday of one of my great crafting pals, the Purple Princess - AKA Kathy Kirby and I'm sharing the card I made for her today.  She is away from home, but I'm hoping she took her cards away with her, if not I guess she now knows what her card looks like !

I used a SU! postage stamp punch to cut out eight squares of white cardstock.  I then applied Distress Inks over all the squares before stamping a Craft Stamper Magazine freebie stamp around the edges using Seedless Preserves DI.  I then attached the squares to a layer of white card and layered this onto a slightly larger piece of coloured card.

The sentiment was die cut using a Tattered Lace magazine freebie die and a piece of the card used for the layer under the squares.

Finally I attached a couple of silk flowers with gems applied to the centres and added a couple more gems to match near the sentiment.

I hope Kathy liked my card, well it is in her favourite colour - Purple !

Thanks for dropping by to see today's project, hope you enjoyed it.
