Purple Penny Black

Hi everyone, how you diddling? Wet? The sunroof in my car is leaking again. Yep, I get soaked every time I go round a left hand bend! Don't laugh! A couple of ducks are thinking about renting out my boot! (Trunk, for those of you in the USA)
This card had to be purple for the monthly challenge I'd intended to enter it in to, but... I missed it! Yes! I missed a monthly challenge! Where did November go? I kept changing the card from being dotting and spotty to flowery and stripy and I just couldn't choose an image either. For the last week it's be sitting on my printer, naked! Until a sheet of Penny Black Stickeroo's fell out of a folder. And look, the little hedgie has a purple balloon! So I think it all matches quite well now and suddenly it changed from being a card I wasn't too keen on, to one that's not too bad after all!
I may've miss one challenge but I was clever enough (Clever? Moi?) to use the sketch from PaperPlay Challenges, so I'm hoping I'm not too late for that one! I've just been blog hopping and found 'Pile it On'
Their challenge #26 this week is Flowers and Flourishes...I think this fits, there's flowers and the papers have flourishes! (flowerishes! I never did get 'spelling'!) I think I might go hunt out another challenge!
All the papers are Pink Petticoat. The Penny Black. The Stickeroo was fixed on to acetate first and then cut out and then fixed to the card with silicone glue. I used Woodware and Martha Stewart punches and a Cuttlebug 'Happy Birthday' folder through my BigShot. The lacy bit is actually the 'waste' from that sticky paper lace you can buy on a roll. There's no glitter on the card at the moment but there might be by the time I send it off!
Any freebies? Just the font. It's called Susie's Hand and you can download it HERE. Or HERE or just Google it!
Sorry about the picture quality, but it's sooo dark! We have those energy saving lights that make every thing look yellow!
I didn't do any blogging over the weekend, but, as if by magic, something will appear down below, later....so, you'll have to scroll down to see Tom, my son-in-law, showing off the Christmas Cards he made, over the weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
