Perfect Purples

This card came together unexpectedly quickly for me as I usually take hours deciding what image/papers/colours to use and then have to change something as it doesn't 'quite' match. I must have been on a lucky strike when I made this as the first thing I chose of everything seemed to look good together!

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

I have used:
Personal impressions flower stamp coloured with Mica pigments.
Nellie snellen frame die
Sizzix decorative corner die
LLB papers and Lace
Personal impressions sentiment stamp
Card candy and Gems from stash

Thanks for stopping by!!

You've just described me when I'm making a card - two to three hours is my norm! Your card is lovely, everything goes together so well. I love the paper and the lace is gorgeous and I love the way you've used the Nellie rectangle frame (I haven't used mine yet - hangs head in shame!!!).

What a lovely card Gemma, and oh boy I know what you mean about taking hours deciding on colours, papers and embellies etc. Sometimes some of my cards take days!!!! The purple lace is a great touch on this one.
Have a good weekend.
