Little Winged Friends - On Walk

Good Evening...

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. It definitely feels like spring is on the way now.

I've had a lovely week. My parents have been up to stay and it's always nice to see them. Work was nice and easy and the 'ironing fairy' had been everyday before I got home (thanks Mum xx). One more week then it's the Easter hols. Can't wait for the break. We're planning to do some work on the outside of the house if the weather is good. Nothing like a bit of spring cleaning.

Anyway onto my card. 
For some reason I'm not that pleased with it, but I can't quite put my finger on why. It's for my daughter's birthday this Friday. Purple's her favourite colour, but I don't have many purple copics (perhaps I'll have to remedy that :)). I think it's possibly too purple with not enough contrast.

I've used some of my new goodies from the Harrogate show....So I did NEED them after all . lol.
I bought the 2 memory box dies, Macarena corner and Catalina wreath. Also used the new postal mark stamps from LOTV.

I chose this image because the bear in it is just like her 1st teddy bear, who is still her best friend even though she'll turn 17!

Hi Janine, I love your card, I don't think its too much purple at all and if that's your daughter's favourite colour, she's going to love it too. We are all too critical of our own work. All the same, nothing wrong with adding to your collection of copics, lol. Love your new stash, I have a couple of memory box dies on order.
Hugs Tracy x
