Make A Wish

Ya gotta love an all purple card - it's just so feminine and fancy.

The layout idea came from a
combined with the
 MFP Sketch With A Twist Challenge 29 - with
 the twist being a purple card
 (think this is a winner!!!) @

Initially I was going to use the white lace, but tried
 coloring it with my stamper and then
 colored it all.  
Note to self - remember to color BOTH sides when using a bow..
 I'm learning the hard way!

 The rounded corners also from 365 Cards - Day 7 - Rounding the Corner @
 (but had to "hide" a couple of corners because
 the challenge has a
minimum of ONE but a maximum of THREE corners).

Most of the patterns used here are from Colorbok's Fancy Fleur pack.

 Electic Ellapu's Challenge recipe:
 1 die cut, 2 pattern paper and 3 embellishments and a ribbon   @

I keep baggies with various size cuts of flowers that I use frequently. 
 I've begun to learn that if I cut them out of a neutral paper,
 I can dye and color them to
 match pretty much anything.

Of course, the project isn't done until I add some
 Liquid Pearls from

Wasn't satisfied with the lace alone - had to add a strip of satin ribbon, just for good measure.

See the butterfly -
 I hope everyone at Red Carpet Studio (RCS - 19) can see it too!!!

Some 1/8" scor tape from
 around the edge of the sentiment layer gave me some
 additional bling -
  ya'll know how much I love
