Ladybug Crafts Ink - plum crazy with stitching!

The challenge this week at Ladybug Crafts Ink is PLUM AND STITCHING. It was chosen by our lovely guest designer Amber. I have to say finding plum papers nearly drove me crazy. I have a mountain of papers but could not get a shade of purple that looked plum:( So eventually I found some lovely digi papers I got from The Creative Cottage a while back and they fitted the bill perfectly.
Image - Cupcake Ruby
Papers - The Crafty Cottage
Embellishments - punched flowers, card candy coloured to match, glitter, punched butterflies, faux stitching
Medium - promarkers and copics
Sentiments - Ladybug Crafts Ink
I would like to enter this into
CES - angels and fairies
Magical Monday Challenge - flowers
Our Creative Corner - 3 musketeers colour challenge I used the third set
Gingerloft - things that fly
The Crafty Pad - something girly
Cupcake Craft Challenge - food for thought
Prairie Fairy Fridays - Happy Birthday
