Congratulations Vivi!

My awesome friend, Vivi, has moved into her new house in Brazil after waiting months and months for the paperwork to finalize. Vivi LOVES purple. She lives for purple. All shades of it, too!  So, when it came time to make her a housewarming card, I had a tough time deciding what color to use. Hahaha!  Now that she's received the card, I can post it.

This is an image by Lili of the Valley. The corner dies are by LOTV and the butterfly punch along the bottom is by Martha Stewart. I made my stickpins. The paper is a picture of hydrangeas. I used plenty of glitter on her tutu and slippers for sparkle. The flowers were made with ribbon.

Congratulations on your new house, Vivi!

Hugs, Gail


  1. Well, just like "pretty in pink", this one is "adorable in purple". I'm betting that Vivi was absolutely ecstatic over this divine creation and will use it as part of her craftroom decor !! Awesome card, as always, Gail !!

  2. This one's a stunner, Gail! Cute image, the bow and stick pins look fabulous, and what sumptous colours!

  3. Simply beautiful Gail ... You really know how to dress up a card with the perfect litle touches....
    Hugs, Janie
