"Shades of Violet" at the Sugar Bowl . . .

Hello there my sweet peas! I'm so excited because it's time for another fun challenge over at the Sugar Bowl!! For this fortnight's challenge, we have this fun sketch from our clever fellow DT Sweetie, Kiki . . .

With the optional theme of . . .
Shades of Violet!!

Fun huh?! Sooooooo, here's what I came up with . . .

This sweetheart is called "Hello Little Friend," and she's from the "Home Grown" collection of Sugar Nellie stamps! Aaackkk! I just checked Funky Kits, and it seems this stamp has been hugely popular . . . because it's currently out of stock! But, no worries, she's on order . . . so keep checking! Here's another pic . . . sort of a side-view . . .

Now, I have to admit, I am sooooo NOT a "purple" person! But, for some strange reason, I have lots and lots of purple and violet supplies! Go figure, huh?!

My card "recipe" . . . 
Perfect Plum & Very Vanilla cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs: Maja (from my sweet friend and DT "partner in crime", Elaine)
Sentiment: Whimsy
Edge and corner punches: Martha Stewart
Butterfly die: Memory Box
Corner: from Paola, my darlin' friend in S. Africa
Flowers & crown pins: Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon, pearls, lace: my stash
Inside tag dies: Marianne's Designs
Copics & pencils on Cryogen Paper

. . .  a peek at the inside . . . I added a little pocket for that tag sentiment and/or a gift card or money!

And, of course, the "artsy" view . . .

Now it's time to pop on over to the Sugar Bowl and take a peek at the fun "Shades of Violet" creations by my fellow DT Sweeties. Then, come join us for this fortnight's challenge! One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a fabulous prize from Sugar Nellie. Once again, our prize for this Sugar Bowl Challenge is:
. . . . your choice of FOUR Sugar Nellie stamps
(increasing to SIX if we have 100+ entries!) . . . .

Remember. . . you can't win if you don't play!!
And invite your friends to play too!

Thanks so much for stopping by. . . and thank you for your sweet comments! Mwahhhh!
