Just GORJUSS!

This is another card where I have combined 4 challenges - it does give you a feeling of satisfaction...and you can't complain about that!! LOL!

The first being the CCEE Challenge, once a month they choose a stamper from SCS because of their name and this month it is one of my Twisted Sisters - flowergal36 - the lovely Dawn....we had to use flowers...the next Challenge is a new one 'Stamping for the Weekend' - it is my second card for this challenge where we were to use the colours purple and yellow - I was not too sure about the first one..so decided to make another one...and I have one more that just needs finishing off....not bad for someone who didn't have much purple...LOL!!! The third challenge is Flutter by Wednesday.....and the fourth one being the OCCC Sketch Challenge....phew...exhausting just listing them!!

The image has been chalked and I have added paper piercing around the edges, then layered it onto purple CS. The background strips have been layered on a brighter purple and I have also added a flower the same colour as well as a more traditional purple. I really like the brighter additions on this card as it brought it to life, otherwise I think it would have been 'flat!' The butterfly is from a RAK from another one of my Twisted Sisters, Lesley (aka Marleygo)...I love these butterflies, they can add so much to a card!
So there you have it....I am happy to have conquered the 'purple/yellow' thing that I had happening - or not happening!!! Don't get a shock when you see another one from me tomorrow....but not for 4 challenges - maybe two! LOL!!

Thanks for looking, please leave a comment so I can see you have been! I love to hear what you think!!

I think the layout is brill and love the way you've done the piercing around the image, looks really effective.
