Are you a purple girl or a pink?

Whether you are a purple or a pink girl I've got a couple of crafty bits for you today.  Personally I'm a blue/green girl with teal being my favourite colour at the moment, but enough about me.
The first card....

With this card I have used my Spellbinder Big scalloped circles nestabilities die to create a stencil which I attached to the front of the card.  I then used Distress inks Seedless preserve and milled lavender over the top to create the scalloped circle shape starting dark around the outside going lighter to the middle. 
The Spellbinder shapeabilities butterfly die was cut and embossed in my calibur and left in the die again to stencil the ink on the embossed area only.  The body of the butterfly was then added to the card and wee bling applied over the top. 
The black butterflies are from Marion's stamp set On your special day by PI and the sentiment is from Find joy everyday. 
A very simple card to create with the right tools.

The next item is a wee purse with a cellophane insert filled with sweeties.

This purse is created using an A4 sheet of card cut 4" wide.  I then scored 4" in from either end to make the front and back of the purse, followed by scoring the centre point between the two 4" marks so that it will fold up into an envelope if need be. 
I have used Victoria velvet and Spun sugar distress inks to cover the white card stamping with water to create a blotchy effect.  The flowers are from Marion's stamp set Find joy everyday, I inked the stems and leaves with a journalling pen and added bling to the centre of the flowers.  The cover in black card was punched with Martha Stewart traditional scalloped edger punch and attached with tape at the back and Velcro at the front.  The wire adds a handle to the purse and the little embellishment is from Spellbinder shapeabilities Ironworks motif.  The ribbon is from my stash.
Inside I have put a bag of chocolate Easter eggs but you could do what you want.

More tomorrow!
