Fussy and Fancy Challenge #105 with Crafty Sentiments

It's the first challenge of the year with the Fussy and Fancy Challenge blog and this week we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments and the fabulous prize is....

Our challenge this week is Monochromatic - to use white and shades of one other colour. I chose to use purple and made this card for my lovely friend Michele to say thank you for her fantastic Christmas present. She loves the colour purple and fairies too, so this gorgeous digi stamp, Scilla Fairy, from Crafty Sentiments was just perfect for her card.

And here it is..I pulled out my new Silhouette Portrait to make the frame on this one. I'm still getting to grips with all the things this machine can do, but I have one question...Why on earth didn't I buy one sooner?! I love it!!!
