My Fantastic Followers:)

It has been quite a week for my poor hubby, Col and his big toe and other work related issues, {that are better left unsaid}. He managed to fracture it yesterday, and although he's in pain, he hasn't complained and still has a smile on his face...that's why I love him so much!!
And because his toe was all shades of purple and black, I made this card with my sweet pea stamp, (sounds a little corny I, as a momento.
 The black backing paper over the purple card stock, I cut out with my craft robo. I also cut out a circle from acetate where I applied dimensional magic, dye inks, and diamond blue glitter and then layed purple tissue paper over it..and allowed it to dry overnight.
I also used dye inks on the blue and purple roses, and they dried almost instantly. I used some stickles to the roses just as highlights.
I also added 2 rows of purple beads, which was really hard to mould but with the help of dimensional magic and various objects to keep the beads in place...they dried and managed to stay in place. Here's another view of the card
 And with this card I would like to enter into the following challenges :)

huggs  xxxx Lynn :)
