It's Fussy and Fancy Time!

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 
Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog!

Today's theme chosen by our very talented Gina is:
LOL ... well anyone who knows me can tell you what my favorite color is!
Since I was a little girl, my favorite color has been any shade is PURPLE!
You will find it all around my house!  I even painted my kitchen purple one time!  
But after a couple of years, repainted to a more neutral color ... upon hubby's request!  lol
I had so much fun creating today's card and was even able to use up some bits&bobs that were laying around on my work tables.  As far as the design, I was actually inspired by a card I spotted over on Pinterest ... so that was my starting point.  And it just look on a life of it's own from there.
OMG ... I just realized that my Celebrate sentiment is the one I die cut for last month's card design but I used the negative portion for that card vs the positive.  YAY ... two for one!!  
 I do hope you will come join in our challenge fun!
See you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by and as always . . .

I'm not sure which I like better. The butterfly or the flower. This is lovely. [Bunny]

I knew I liked you for a reason!!! My favorite color is purple too!!! That's why I love your card so much, plus it's got some pretty beautiful elements. That flower is stunning and so is the butterfly. I love that it's cut out of patterned paper. Really, really pretty creation!!!

I think it's awesome that you're passionate about a color. It seems when a person loves purple, they REALLY LOVE PURPLE! Funny about your kitchen, tee hee! All that aside, Darlene, I love purple, too, and you sure used it beautifully on your card! All those pretty shades and different elements... gorgeous! I'd have to say my fave color is yellow. Yellow house, yellow bedroom, yellow flowers... However, I have pale plum vertical blinds on my large front windows and I have a purple coat plus just bought another one in a different shade of purple. I wear it a lot. Yellow is hard to wear, boo hoo. Gosh, I'm talky today. First chance I've had to catch up in days.
