DDS #114 Pink and Purple Challenge

Afternoon All, 

Sorry I haven't been blogging much this week 
I haven't been able to get back in to sync after the funeral 
and I just seem to be exhausted all the time,
 I'm also finishing up work for the summer holidays 
and will be starting my new job in September working in a Montessori 
so have been going to work in the mornings training in the Montessori mid morning 
then back to work in the afternoon and then home to teach music or make my commissioned cards
 so I am physically exhausted and can't wait for the summer break :)
So anyway today is Thursday so that means it's challenge time over at Digi Doodle Shop
 and the theme this week is Pink and Purple :) 
I have used the gorgeous Little Momma stamp she is such a sweetie :)

White, Purple, Pink Cardstock from the Papermill
Backing Paper from Stash
Pink and Purple sparkly ribbon from Stash
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
Gemstones from Papermill
Pearl Ribbon bow from Ebay 
Image is colored with promarkers 
(can't find the piece of paper that I wrote the colors on :) lol )

Hope to see you over at our Pink & Purple Challenge this week
