Pretty in Purple


Good morning everyone....can you believe it's Wednesday already?? I had such a wonderful visit with my niece but it was way too short!! She will retire from the Air Force next summer so we are all planning a retirement party in Las Vegas...I think that would be a great way to end her military career!! Anyway...I finished this card after Andi left...it's for my sister's 40th wedding anniversary. She loves purple so I know she will love it and maybe she will forgive me for being very late ...her anniversary was Monday...oops!!!
The Rubbernecker Pansies #506-04 were colored with Copics and layered on the doily diecut...the paper is from Bo Bunny Jazmyne dp and the pearls, button, twine, and purple ribbon finish it off.
