purple birthday

 Hi guys,

I have a fun birthday card to share with you today.

I folded the card at 10cm intervals to create the base. I then used an edging die from Joanna Sheen going on a diagonal along the top. I used alternate tent and valley folds and then inked the die-cut area on the side that was showing when folded, using purple pretty colour ink. I then used some purple papers from the Papermania Henbury Lane paper collection for each of the panels (there is a larger section of the central paper on the panel at the back which is showing when the card is standing). I finished with gold peel-off sentiment, a neutral sentiment topper and some blue and gold diamantes.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

colormyheart #411 Tic-tac-toe (purple, gold, green)

simplylessismoore #428 shades of purple

craftycalendar - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz
