613 Avenue Create Challenge #116 Anything Goes/Purple Day

Hi Crafters,
Thank you so much for all the get well wishes, I really appreciated them and they cheered me up no-end.  I am feeling much better today but I must learn not to overdue things.
On to the job at hand though and it is a new challenge at 613 Avenue Create. This time we are celebrating Purple Day which is the 26th March and is Epilepsy Awareness Day. The challenge as always is Anything Goes but for the twist we would like you to use the colour purple or add purple ribbon to your project.

I do love purple and the shade you have used is so gorgeous and rich, just perfect with the sparkly stuff in your shaker section.
The silhouette image and black die cuts look really dramatic against the purple too - a real stunner of a card :-)

I'm glad you're feeling better too!

And yes, it was a lovely surprise to see a Magnolia stand at the NEC - the stamps were such a good price, even if they were unmounted. The dies were a great price too but I only got one border die as I had quite a few of the others already!

Big hugs, Kat xx
