Purple Passion at Allsorts

Good morning. What a busy weekend we have ahead of us - all good though :o)
It's Jack's 14th birthday on Monday and the celebrations start today - a few friends over for tea this evening and then a sleepover before we go to Thorpe Park for the day tomorrow. 
Then we are picking Lola Arizona  up to come and stay for the week while her Daddy is on holiday and her Mummy is away for a long weekend celebrating her birthday too :o)
 I'm sure I'll be shattered by the time the week is over but it will be so much fun :o)

Anyway today we have a new challenge for you over at


and this week the lovely Tracy has picked the theme


Here's what I did:
 I had another play with my Stampendous Frantage Encrusted Jewels embossing powders, glitters and colour fragments. I'm really loving this technique at the moment :o)

 The scrummy image is also by Stampendous - I stamped an extra butterfly onto vellum with Flitter Glue and added some Gilding Flakes and then overlaid this onto the main image.
 The fabulous DP is from Pink Petticoat - edges inked with Dusty Concorde.
Butterfly border - Memory Box with Viva Decor pearls added to centres
Sentiment - Kaisercraft
