Perfectly Purple

Good afternoon ladies! I had a really great day today. My mom, sister and two of my nephews came up today.  While the kids all played...video games of course... my mom, sister and I got a little crafty and made some cards. So I've got a few cards to share with you today.  My first card is for the perfect purples challenge at Karen's Doodles.  The image I used is called Love At First Sight.  The base of my card is wild pansy (purple) backed in grape (dark purple).  I punched a strip of white cardstock using an eyelet lace border punch and added it to a strip of purple plaid cardstock.  Then added it to the left side of the card.  I added a white satin ribbon across the middle of the card. I colored the image using different shade of purple colored pencils. I backed it in grape and then again in white and added it to the right side of the card.  I created a bow out of the white satin ribbon and added it to the left side and finished off the card by adding two white pearls above the photo and two white pearls below the photo.
