MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT.................................PURPLE HAZE

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
 Sorry I have been missing again for a while, but last Thursday my eldest sister passed away from Cancer, and I couldn't bring my self to write about it until now.
The funeral is next week so I will be off to Wales early next week.
She wanted everyone to wear something bright and cheerful to celebrate her life.

Today starts another challenge over at
MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES.
This time around it's the B Teams turn. and Jan Small is the host, and she would like Purple on your entries.
So pop over, and take a look at what my lovely team mates have created.

So here is my DT card.

  
I decided to make a oval shaped easel card with my Spellbinders Grand Scolloped Oval Die.
The flowers are from a silk bunch I bought ages ago, and I just took them apart, and added some stamens to them.
The leaf flourishes are Spellbinders.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I really do appreciate every comment that you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
