Grape deal

It's my time to guest design for Fitztown Challenge Blog this Sunday. I have made a card with an image from the Stardust and pumpkin collection.

Card recipe:
*Image: Fitztown - Snp2 
*Paper sheets: local craft store Pysselmakaren
*Shiny borders (pink with dots + pink, green, white stripes): issue 57 of Let's make Cards
*Yellow lace: local haberdasher Ronnys Symaskiner
*Light purple ribbon: local haberdasher
*Pearls: Old necklace which I have "recycled" for card-making etc. 
*Flower with pink pearl: local craft store Pysselmakaren
*Floral border: Simon Says Stamp 

I thought that it was about time to create a purple card. I decided to combine the purple with some other fun colours as well. I dyed the yellow lace with yellow paint to make it bright yellow, since I thought it would be a fun detail to go along with the yellow dots (which you can find on the purple paper background). 

I have coloured the flower with nail polish and Stickles. Nail polish has also been used for the floral border. The sentiment has been covered with Stickles, so you can barely see the font (LT Chickenhawk) lol. I have made a border with Stickles around my card with the following Ranger Stickles: Diamond, Eucalyptus, Fruit Punch, Green, Lagoon, Magenta, Mystic Green, Orange Peel, Starry Night, Thistle, Tropical Tangerine, Turquoise, Waterfall, Yellow. I have also added some Stickles to the image's dress (see the dots) and her hair and head-band (or do you say hairband?). For the fairy's skin I chose Promarker Almond. For the hair I went with different orange, brown and red Promarkers.
