#167 Live on the edge @ The Crafty Pad

Sweet Sunday folks :) 

It is time for a new challenge at 
and this week it is all about 
We would like you to add some fancy edging or 
go out and off the edge with your embellishments.
Too easy! So please do come and have a play with us :))

If you go for a peak around here there is not much in the way of purple in my creations :$  I don't know why, just the 2 of us never seem to be able to play nice and agree.  But as part of tackling the news years resolutions of stepping out of the comfort zone more, it did lead me to today's card. 

 My soft spot of silhouettes lead me to The Crafty Pad Designs - Lady Stitching Silhouette and with a little editing help from combined it with the circular Crafty Pad Designs - Sewing Sentiments Ticket.

I had a play with some white paint on the DP - something that has been on my to try list for a while and I rather like the effect of the paint spots and splatters.  The 2 purple buttons are from Nana's button tin along the purple lace and trim dug out from Nana's craft box.  The shape and the layer were cut from my Silhouette Cameo originally from a layered decorative circle that I cut and edited. 

This week Creative Craft World has kindly sponsored the challenge :) 
To one lucky random winner they will receive ... 
£5 voucher to spend in their shop.
