A touch of purple

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well.  Just had a lovely chinese for tea followed by yummy chocolate cake.  My daughter bought it for me for my birthday.  Had a good day and been spoiled rotten.  Even had a lovely bouquet of flowers delivered at work.
Anyhow, did have time to put together a card when I got home from work today.  It is a colleagues birthday on Tuesday so this is a card I have made for her.
I used one of my tatty ted toppers.  I do love these but find I don't use them as often as I used to.  Teamed it up with lots of purple.  All the papers were from my scraps box (trying to use them up when I can).  The roses are from Wild Orchid.  Finished it with some skeleton leaves, stick pins, lace, ribbon, silver corners, butterflies and pearls.  Also added some faux stitching around the edge of the topper and the central panel.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Forever Friends - Ribbon and Lace
Crafty Catz - Use things with the letter B (bow, bling, butterflies, bear)
Sentimental Sundays - Lace and pearls
Kaboodle Doodles - Shades of purple
Love to Create - Add stitching (real or faux)
Top Tip Tuesday - Stitches (real or faux)
Celebrate the Occasion - Birthdays and add bling

Thanks for popping by.  Off to watch a film now with the lovely Liam Neeson.
Take care
