Pretty in purple......

Hi everyone, and welcome to my new follower, Linda....thank you for helping me try to reach 1,000 followers by next week. As you say, only 931 to go, hahaha.
I have made a card today which turned out to be a very costly affair.....Used, and scrapped about 10 sheets of paper and card for ONE order of an easel style card. The customer wanted a school badge on the card, but I couldn't get it bigger than 4 cms x 4 cms, which of course was pretty useless. Anyway after a bit of help from my son Adam, I finally got a card I was reasonably happy with, glad it's gone though, as it was 'clouding my mind' you ever have cards that you put off doing because you just can't think of what to do? well I've been putting this one off for 2 weeks.!!
 I have 2 full days of Craft Fairs this weekend, so tomorrow I'll be making a new batch of male themed cards...yeh :-)
Anyway, tonight's card is one I did last week, when I was going through my 'different style every day' phase.

I don't often use lilac colours, but when I do, I love it combined with black.
I had these pretty lilac roses too that I just needed to use.
The sentiment is from ... I love their stamps.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog, please leave a comment if you like this card x
Until tomorrow......
