Sheesh, the encouragement part of Holly's challenge was even harder than the purple, but I hope this counts.
A2 base, green Bazzill.
White card painted with purple paint, embossed with Stylized Flowers when dry and sanded, layered on some orange card. I wrapped purple grosgrain ribbon around and laid silver cord over it.
Penny Black image inked with markers, misted and stamped on watercolour paper. Sentiment added, and edges distressed and sponged, then the panel was popped up on foam. I added a little purple bow with a silver half pearl for good measure. Too complicated to try to tie a bow with ribbon and cord and get it looking good ;-), it's time to go back to bed with another cold and 'flu drink.
