'V is for.........Violet' ABC Challenge

Afternoon folks,
Sorry I'm a little late posting today it has been a bit manic here but anyway nuff about that for now as it's time once again for another fab challenge over ABC and this time the challenge is 'V is for Violet'. So it's time to think about all that is purpley! (not sure that's a word but nevermind).  Well I chose to use another gorgeously sassy diva from Kraftin Kimmie known as 'Vivienne'. All of the beautiful DP's are from the Paris Nights pad by GCD. I lightly distressed everything with Black Soot DI, coloured with Promarkers and added some sparkle with some Stardust Stickles.

The lace I coloured with Promarkers and I added mores stickles to the yummy violet rose cos you can never have enough bling!! Add a few more pearls, some scrummy brads and voile!
