Bit more purple !

I think I'm just about purpled out now ! It's not my favourite colour to work with but as this is another card order and part of the request was to use purple, I've had to bite the bullet! I'm putting this card in for the following challenges:

The main image is a free stamp that came with a Craft Stamper magazine, and has come in very handy as the other part of the request was to make a card for a dog walker ! I've stamped it with black Memento then shaded with Pro Markers. I've cut it out with a circle Nestability. The background on the bottom half of the card is stamped with a Crafty Individuals swirl stamp with Royal Purple Stazon ink. I've then blended Concord Grape Versamagic ink and Weathered Wood Distress ink around the edge. The spotty paper is Pink Petticoat and I've blended the same ink around the edge of this too.

I've cut some flowers using a Sizzix Bigz die and a Woodware punch and put them through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The numbers are cut using the Olivia alphabet, and the stitching is 'Faux' using a Tombo pen. The sentiment is from a Papermania stamp set stamped with Royal Purple Stazon ink.
This card has taken me ages to do, I just couldn't decide on what to do ! Right just time to watch the end of Friends (can't believe I've got into this programme !) before bed !
Thanks for looking
