Purple Birthday card

Hello, everyone!
Today I have made a special birthday card.

There are two linky party out there, which celebrate Sandie Munro's birthday.
I've got to know Sandie (aka London Days) when I had the honour to be the guest designer at Time Out Challenge. She is so lovely and is always one of the first people who leave encouraging comments when I link up my entry into the challenges where she is in DT. And I'm always amazed by her CAS style.

Happy happy belated Birthday, Sandie! I hope you had wonderful birthday!

The theme of the linky party at Time Out is CAS with the optional twist of purple.
And here is what I came up with.

To start off I made a cutting file for the curvy line with a integrated bow like the picture below and another cutting file for the thiner line.

I then cut it from a white CS with my Cricut and blended purple DIs on the line and the back of the bow part. I added some pearl pigment with a dry brush on the blended area for some shine. I chose a purple polka dot pattern paper for the background, glued it on the card base and then the thin line onto its place.
After I stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches in purple I made the bow using some glue and added a purple rhinestone on the bow. Lastly I mounted the front panel using foam tape.

I'm entering this card also into Addicted to Stamps and More #194: Clean and Simple.

Thank you all for coming!
Have a wonderful weekend!
