Anything Goes (opt. Twist - Use Purple) - CH#2 - A Step in the Dark

Happy Wednesday my lovelies, can you believe it is half past week, already, had another early start this morning, 1.45am, not so happy about that...however, yesterday, we were told we can officially share the news that a New Grandchild will be born, at the end of November, so happy for Brian and Vicky and their son Brendon, and if the baby is maybe a week late, might be born on my birthday, how fabulous would that be for a present..LOL.

Well onto the business off the day, we are already at CH#2 at A Step in the Dark, which is as it says on the tin, a challenge blog for the darker cards, we had a massive amounts of entries for CH#1, so thank you to everyone who took part and hope we will see you again, this fortnight.   The Challenge is Always Anything Goes (with an Optional Twist) - Use Purple.  I got to play with Emo Alice from the Stamping Boutique, one off our sponsors this week..

As I have said before, I am limited with my embellishments and dies, for the darker cards, so trawling the internet to find some new ones, As Emo Alice, has a The Doors, Top on, and Emo's like to skateboard, I went with that for embellishments, even adding a Door's record for you to sing all day, Riders on the Storm, all together now.....LOL.  anyway, I hope you like this card, and I look forward to seeing your makes.

Thank you again to everyone who took part in our 1st challenge, the Winner's and Top 3, can be found here.
