Six challenges in one this time!

Two posts in one night as well. The last one took ages and I couldn't get enough photos downloaded either!!

Well here goes. This card came together more easily than I expected.

Firstly, I used the Lili of the Valley sketch a copy of which is below.


Then I chose my image, which is a Pollycraft freebie of Feathers the dragon. I then coloured him in purple using my trusty Carane D'Ache water pencils. Thus covering the Our Creative Corner Colour Challenge of purple. I also needed to use a stamp so the background piece with the swirly flowers is one of Kay Carley's - Daisy Daydreams. This was coloured using Sakura stardust gel pens. Also colouring in a digi stamp was the challenge at Bee Crafty .
I have used purple glitter board for the main background which covers the bling challenge at Digital Tuesday .
The challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar is Floral Fantasy - there are flower embellishments - Just Pots Funky Flowers - and flowers in the background and I think Feathers qualifies as the bit of fantasy!
Last but by no means least I have used some forgotten stash - the purple ribbon which is from American Crafts, Elements. This covers the challenge at My Time To Craft .


Phew!!!!

Oh, Ali, Feathers looks darling...though I guess that's not the proper way to describe a dragon! Such a fun card! Thanks for playing along with us at Digital Tuesday!
Blessings, Maria

What a gorgeous card Ali. Just adore feathers, despite being purple he reminds me of Pete's Dragon, a fav of DD's from her youth.

Thanks for directing me to the OCC challenge. I have had great fun making my own purple card. How weird as well, my comment appears beneath yours on their comments thread! Spooky.
