Sugar bowl challenge 57

It's that time again and today the sketch is from the lovely Maria Theresa and the theme "purple and green".
Here is my take on the challenge:

I've taken a less is more approach to this challenge, it seems to be a trend just now. 
I'm loving the colour combo too, so thanks very much Maria.
This is the sketch to follow:

I have used:
Stamp:   Hippie Love a stunning Simply Sassey Sugar Nellie stamp, can you tell she is one of my new favourites?
The papers are from Doodlebug.  Green and purple cardstock.
Dolie from the states.
Nellies multi frame MFD020 die cut.  Spellbinders Nestibilities round die.  SU bird punch for leaves.
Embossing folder cuttlebug flowers.
Coloured with copics and Rangers Glossy accents added.
Embellishments:  Pins, tape, heart,wire and flowers from my stash.

Up for grabs, or should I stay the prize for this challenge is Set 6 of the Simply Sassy stamps and a new Spellbinder Nestibilities die!
As I always say at this point "you got to be in it to win it!"
Happy crafting enjoy the sketch. x

Perfect embellies.
