Brigitta just for you

OMGosh I have succumbed to the little girl stamps!!! I have held of for soooooo long and then one day an online shop has a ridiculously great sale and I just had to buy some and give them a go! I don't know why I have avoided these type of stamps (the magnolias etc) maybe because I don't have anyone to give these types of cards to ... some how I think my 11 year nephew would just die if he got one of these ... oh my gosh I could give one to him just to annoy him!!! yes I might just do that! Anyway here is my card ...

her name is Brigitta and here is a close up

I have made this card following the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches #114. The colour inspiration comes from Scrapbook Boutique - White, Lavender and Purple. I have incorporated the criteria from CRAFT #108 and that was 1 tag (title), 2 circles (under the tulip and the tag) and 3 rectangles/squares (the layered paper). I am also submitting it for the challenge at Paper Sundaes and naturally I chose purple and gems (liquid pearls) as my choice and also for Kaboodle Doodles - circles and dots - I love spots and dots paper!
materials - American 'wine' cardstock, Bazzill white cardstock; Cosmo Cricket 'mitten weather' papers; CC Designs 'swiss pixies tulip brigitta' stamp, Grant Archival 'Grace Taylor celebrate' stamps; Stazon black, Color Palette 'sunrise' inks; Creative Memories circle cutters; Fiskars 'round the bend' punch; Sizzix oval tags die; Marvy pens - blender 0, pale orange 16, dark brown 18, leaft green 48, ultramarine 50, wine 63, cirtus yellow 69 amethyst 106; Ranger 'white opal' liquid pearls; 1/8" purple eyelet; lilac ribbon.
