Ivy in Purple

Did everyone have a great weekend? I spent most of saturday doing the household chores, you know the ones - vacuuming, washing floors, laundry etc.  I even did some baking, found this really good recipe for Carrot Gingerbread Muffins - mmmmm good, wasn't on my WW diet, but I'll fess up I had to try one - how can you not try them after smelling them as they cook right?

So for todays card, I would like to share with you Ivy Ketto.

 I had her colored up for a few weeks, but just never got around to finishing her up.  After rummaging  through my paper buckets looking for just the right 'purple' color (so many different purple tones out there)  I decided on this paper from Bo Bonny. Just love the deep richness of the purple.  Some of the flowers on the paper are glittered, it is very pretty IRL!  So as usually I stamped Ivy on Bella's bestest paper using Black Memento ink. and colored with prisma's and gamsol.  I just got some new Spellbinder dies last week, so just had to try them out. I cut Ivy out with a circle nestie and used the Lacey Circles to cut the green.  I love this die, I can see me using it quite often.  I also bought the square ones as well.
Finished the card off with ribbon, glitter, and some clear baubles.

Well it's getting late, best be getting to bed.

Night all!
