Friend Card Using CTMH Lucy Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy and Cricut Artiste Cartridges

Hello to all my wonderful Purpleglo Creations followers.  I have a fabulous card I created with a digi I received free from The Stamping Chef about a week ago.  If you participate in their Facebook Fan Page challenges; you can receive a free digi with each challenge as long as you create something for that challenge with it.  You should check it out.  They have wonderful Digis to purchase as well.  If you like this one; you can now purchase it. If you go to the Stamping Chef blog listed above; you can find their Facebook fan page. It is a closed group; so follow the link near the bottom of the page and hopefully there will be instructions on how to join.
This image is the "Lost Fairy".  I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and knew I had to create something with her.  I had a new CTMH "For A Friend" Stamp set I wanted to use; so I used it with this card.  You can find this Side Step Easel card tutorial on my Tutorial page.  The pink colors are very difficult to adequately show the true colors in these pictures; but hopefully you will get the idea.  The flowers are actually pink; although they look a different color.  I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it.  She is so beautiful!!
