Kraftin' Kimmie Cards

Hi Guys! Last night, I was up late, chatting with guess who, and colouring a couple of Kraftin' Kimmie images for some cards I knew I wanted to make.... here's the first -
By now, most of you probably know I dislike using the colour purple... to me, it just doesn't seem to 'work' for me... But, Annmaree sent me a Kaisercraft paper pad (Hippy Girl) that contained a lot of purple.... so, I had to use it! I've coloured up Talulahbelle with Spectrum Noir Markers and cut her out using my nesting circle dies... I the cut out a slightly bigger one in Elegant Eggplant cardstock. I layered up the papers on more eggplant card and stitched around them using the sewing machine. The sentiment has been white embossed and I have added some flowers and bling to finish it off. This card is using the current sketch from The Paper Players.
Now, on to the next card -
This is Goldilocks, and she's been coloured with my Speccies as well... I fussy cut her out, and the moved onto creating the card. I have used patterned paper from Simple Stories Fabulous range and they have been layered on to white card before being mounted on to the card base. Before sticking down the striped card, I added two twill ribbon loops. I then attached the stripey paper and a crocheted doily. I attached some buttons and my image popped up on a bunch of dimensionals. 
I am entering this second card into the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, and also the Addicted to Stamps Bingo challenge - Flowers, Buttons, Blue
Thanks for dropping by!

Well, I'd say you'd cracked the purple in the top card! I agree with you about purple - there are certain shades of it that just don't seem to coordinate with any other colour, aren't there?

The pastels in the second card work beautifully with the floral paper and I really like the buttons and crochet doily combination. Thank you ever so much for sharing this with us at Addicted to Stamps :)
