Lil Frolic Sitting Pretty

Hello friends and followers - so nice of you to stop by to visit.  
I have a card to share with you on which I tried something new. 
First, here's the card and then I'll tell you what I tried for the first time :o)
Digital image by Lacy Sunshine: Lil Frolic Sitting Pretty

So....what did I try that's different? 
I colored her hair a bright, non-typical color.
I wanted to do a  monochromatic purple theme and keep everything else neutral.
So I stepped out of my comfort zone and went for the purple hair - and I LOVE it!! 
Probably not as exciting for you as it is for me, but thanks for sharing it with me!

I'm also happy because I managed to use up several items from my stash 
(LOVE tickets, designer paper, purple flower shaped brads & the teeny paper daisy). 
I added some rich razzleberry ink to the flowers with a sponge dauber,
I like the depth and interest it gave them. 

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:

The Card Concept -Challenge #9 Monochromatic Purple 
and create in one of the style's of the design team.
I tried a freestyle collage style this time (hope I succeeded). 
4 Crafty Chicks - 4CCC #193 "Flowers"
Lacy Sunshine Facebook Group - Lil Frolic Sitting Pretty or Little Fidgit
Love to Create Challenge #114 "Say it with Flowers"
TIME OUT Challenges #5 - Time Flies/ Love Lasts (see Love on the ticket strip) 
Papertake Weekly "Anything Goes" (optional twist no designer paper- no twist for me)
613 Avenue Create Challenge #70 - Anything Goes (twist bling)

As a side note - a couple of months ago I found the Lacy Sunshine facebook group 
and have been participating in Heather's special challenges.
Heather gives the group members a choice of two images for each challenge
and offers us the opportunity to get one of them free to use. 
The image I used for the current challenge is called Lil Frolic Sitting Pretty.
I've had a lot of fun being part of this group and the challenges.
