Purple Paradise

Feels like we're in 'Paradise' here in Cyprus as the weather is still fab!!! The Greek Cypriots are getting ready for their Easter this weekend. A happy family time which they celebrate far more than they do Christmas.

This week's challenge at CD Sunday is 'Purple Paradise. I've chosen an image from Debbie Moore's 'Glitter and Glitz' CD. I  love her Art Deco ladies and it's hard to choose a favourite. I've used shades or purple card to double mount it and a varigated striped card as a background. Adding a big purple bow and flower to the corner plus a deco peel off corner.

This card starts off as along oblong and then folded to overlap making a square card.






 I then cut the top and bottom piece diagonally. The topper then overlaps the opening.


 
Think the piccies explain it better than I do!!
