Die Cuttin' Divas Guest Designer

Hello everyone!  I am so honored to be a guest designer for today's challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas!  This week's challenge is

Purple and Pearls

I love purple, but it's not a color that I go to often in crafting, so I was really excited for this challenge.  I started off with an A2 sized white card, and then put a piece of purple patterned paper on as a background.  I'm not sure where the paper is from, because I found it in my stash.  I used a piece of Doodlebug washi tape along the bottom as an accent.

I cut the oval from Elegant Edges using the Oblong and Shadow features.  Next, I cut the poodle from Once Upon a Princess.  Originally, she was very light lavender.  I found her too difficult to see against the white mat, so I just colored over her entire body with my Versapen.  It gave her just a slightly deeper tone, which I really like.  I made her bow and collar sparkly with some Stickles.  To finish off the card, I added three pearls that I got from Hobby Lobby in the top corner. 

Your challenge this week is to create a die-cut project using purple and pearls and link it up at Die Cuttin' Divas.  There's a ton of inspiration over there from their Design Team- go check it out!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with.  :)

PS- Kudos to anyone who can guess which Disney character my purple poodle reminded me of and the song she inspired me to belt out while I was creating this card.
