Purple Paradise??

Welcome to my second DT post for the day. (I do also have some personal cards to share, but they will have to wait for another day now, as I really need to start getting ready for work lol). This post is for our new challenge over at Creative Moments. As always challenge #129 is Anything Goes, with the optional twist of Purple Paradise. Our fabulous sponsors for this challenge are
Dr. Digi
Who are offering two images to the winner
Who are offering a $15 voucher for the entire store to the winner
I have used Weekend Walter & Weekend Wanda from Dr Digi.

My hubby has the exact same bear slippers, which is why I chose the image, but I struggled to think of a sentiment. Therefore, I left room for a sentiment once the card has a specified recipient :). So firstly I cut some patterned and glitter Papermania paper and layered it in strips on some glitter cardstock. I wanted the effect to be a little bit higgledy-piggledy, but not too much, so cut a couple of slanted edges and made the central panel a little smaller. The idea was for a first thing in the morning look - slightly disheaveled. I layered a square of plain purple over this, which does have a little bit of a sparkle too. The images were coloured with Promarkers and then fussy-cut to layer over the panels.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
PFP #417 Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' - Sparkle and Shine
simply create too #132 Favourite Colour - purple is one of my favourite colours

And here is another cross stitch - this one recently finished at just under 6 hours I think!

Once again thank you for looking - now off to work for me!
