Going purple for Papertrey

I don't normally "do" purple, I don't dislike it, but it never seems to jump out at me. However I recently won some precious Papertrey Ink papers and they're all purple, so that seemed a good a reason as any to go purple!

The challenge over at PTI is a birthday one, and although I haven't put a birthday sentiment on the front of the card, it could be used for a birthday (ok, I'll come clean - I forgot about the birthday bit until I'd stuck the sentiment on the front - so I'm hoping it will still be allowed!).

It's my first Sugar Nellie too, my friend Carly stamped some images for me and this was among them, I think she's gorgeous, so thanks again Carly.

Stamp - Sugar Nellie
Sentiment - Stampin' Up! Best Yet
DSP's - Guidelines by Papertrey Ink
Cardstock - Stampin' Up! Perfect Plum
Flower & bling - from my stash.
