Happy Birthday Vivi!

I have a wonderful friend in Brazil who loves purple...I mean she really loves purple and any shade of purple. All year long I watch for stamping items that are purple and I send them to her for her birthday, Christmas and sometimes just because. Vivi has been a wonderful friend for years now and I made this card just for her. I can finally post it since her birthday was this past week and she got to open her birthday box.

This is a Hanglar image, the butterfly punches are Martha Stewart, the flowers are Wild Orchid and the white flowers die is from Memory Box. I don't remember who made the open leaf die. I used Copics to color this little Hanglar. I embossed and sanded the background purple paper and I don't remember where I got the purple and green striped paper. This card measures 6x6.

Thank you for looking at my blog and to all those who signed up as a "Member" or "Follower". I'm entering this card in the challenge at Sweet Stampin' called Flowers.  I appreciate you looking and commenting on my cards and I'm still hoping to get on as a Design Team member with Sweet Stampin'.  Hugs, Gail
