A Wheelbarrow Full Of Love

I made this card today for a few challenges.

This is the Friday Freebie image from Sew Many Cards Challenge.  I thought it was really sweet so I downloaded it and decided to use it to enter the challenge.  Her challenge is Purple, White and a Splash of Black.  Not being a purple person all I had in my craft room that was purple was some solid CS.  This card is  a 6"x6" square.  I used black and cut a piece of the purple 5-1/2 x 5-1/2.    I was using a sketch from another challenge so I needed another paper with purple.  I used a clear flourish stamp and stamped with purple on white paper to make it.  I cut the image out with an oval nestie and backed it with a nestie scallop.  The sentiment was also a clear $1 stamp cut out with nesties.  I tried my hand at making one of those scrunchie flowers I had been seeing everywhere and saw again on Cheryl's blog and thought I'd give it a try.   Her blog is definately one of my favorites (she doesn't know it but I began following her before I had a blog).   Ok ... lol ... back to my card......I only had a little flower punch and used old dictionary pages and inked them with purple.  It is OK but I need more practice.  I added glitter to the hearts and around the edge (for ano
ther challenge) and 6 black dots.  Image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  And that is all there is to it.  A pretty simple card really....I am not overly pleased with it but I hope you like it anyway.  Til next time.......
