C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 57

The Craft Challenge for this week, Number 57, is to follow the colours Purple and Green with Gems.
I got my new Hougie Board yesterday so I sat having a play with loads of embossing techniques on different spare pieces of card to see what came out with, like you do, and I found myself with the background to this card.
I used a cream pearlescent card, which I bought from my local Hobbycraft, then I cut down the card so it was exact inches and then scored the lines an inch apart. After that I got some green holographic  mirri board and scored a grid pattern 2 cm apart then cut these out, and then used my corner punch to snip the corners off the squares, and stuck them in the squares between the embossed lines.
After that, I coloured in the lovely Miss Evie Patches image, which is from the wonderfully talented  Squigglestamps, and I coloured it with Grass Green, Olive Green, Pale Green, Forest Green and Purple Promarkers, and cut it out, then stuck on purple gems in her hair and on her shoes, flower, buttons, and added a couple green square gems onto her pocket,  then with 3d sticky dots I stuck it to the card.
I used a purple happy birthday banner and stuck 2 green gems onto that.
My card is pictured below, I hope you like it!
