Bella Hearts

I'm in purple mode today with Bella the elephant (and her friend).  I followed a sketch which really highlighted the lovely papers.  I do really like this shade of purple and followed it through into the flower die cut, ribbon and image, although I did sneak a bit of pink in there too!

What a gorgeous card! I know exactly the sketch you mean as I have made a card with it as well this weekend. I love how you have put your own style in to it though with the scalloped base.
