StampFairy - anything but a card

Our challenge this week at STAMPFAIRY is anything but a card!
This week I decided to make a collection can for a charity we collect for during Lent. I bought a large Harry Potter money can from Poundland. It was so big a 12'' square paper wouldn't meet at the back so I found some old wrapping paper I had kept (as you do) which fitted perfectly. It has a gorgeous sparkle to it and a lovely deep shade of purple.  Its now parked at the front door so all callers might feel obliged to drop a few pennies in:)
Papers - old wrapping paper
Sentiment - computer generated cut with fancy cutter
Medium - promarkers
I cut out the image and stuck to wrapping paper.
I would like to enter this into
Do You stack Up - anything goes
Hanna and friends - purple plus one (beige)
If the Shoe Fits - let your purple shine
2 Sisters - teddy bears picnic
Paper Pretties - sparkle (lots of sparkle in my paper)
Paper Playtime - digi Monday anything goes
Gerda has just released this lovely set of images called Pasty April Showers which you can get HERE.
Aren't they just adorable!!
