ABC Challenges - "V is for Violet"

Good Morning Crafters, I cannot believe we have already reached the letter V over on the ABC Challenge Blogspot, and we are also being sponsored by The Paper Shelter


And they are the company that I work for  I was lucky enough to be able to choose any Image to play with and this is the result


She is called "Purity" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and then coloured it with copic pens and then cut it out with a circle die and a fancy one for the mount out of mauve card.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of mauve card and the backing papers I have used are the "Watercolour Dreams" paper set and you will find them here on The Paper Shelter website.
I have used two of the papers the pretty first layer is in greens and mauves, on top of this I have used a blue one to contrast it. I then wrapped a piece of mauve ribbon around the card but before doing so I pleated a piece of spiderweb ribbon and stuck it down with the mauve ribbon on the top edge.
I also created a bow and put this on top on the left hand side.
The mounted image was firstly stuck on a pretty circular doily and placed in the middle over the mauve ribbon, I stamped a sentiment and placed it at the bottom on the right hand side and the final flourish are the 6 pearls in the top two corners.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pop over to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see for yourself what the rest of the DT have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "V is for Violet" Challenge.
