My card has been made using the image
Everyone Need A Hug, and what a joy it
was to colour this one just a gorgeous image.

My take on the challenge theme was to use
the colour Purple and Gems as the embellishments.

1. Card size is 8 x 8 and I have matted this with purple paper
from my stash. To this I added the purple felt doily and
a heart doily. I added a piece of purple organza  across
the bottom.

2. The image was coloured with Copic and then die cut. Next
using the same die, I cut the backing frame from purple
card and then mounted the image onto it. It was then

3. The heart frame around the  image was done using a
Tattered Lace die (sorry do not know the name).
The words on the image were from the stamp set
Love & Romance from the Signature collection
by Sara Davies. The dots down the side were
made using a freebie stamp that came with the
Docraft Creativity magazine.

To complete the card I added purple gems at  one
corner, along the organza and in the centres of
the flowers on the felt doily.

So there you have it! I hope you come and join us
as we love seeing all the different creations that
manage to come up with.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
