                                     In His Love, Be Inspired, 

First, off, I want to wish the birthday girl who is a very dear friend and sister a very very happy birthday. Kari has her love of chocolate, purple, and butterflies. Well, Kari, I have combined the these just for you!!!!!

First off, the birthday girl needs a crown - not just any crown but a chocolate crown with purple stickles and rhinestones!!!  This was cut from Once Upon a Princess using the Sweet Stack paper. And Kari, don't worry this crown is adjustable!!!!

Now, what's a birthday for a dear friend without a card .... this card was cut again, using the Sweet Stack with butterflies cut using my E2 Alphabet built-in cartridge. The Cuttlbug was used to emboss the butterflies and the inside of the card with Swirls, Dots, and Birthday. Purple ribbon and bow with rhinestones were added for bling bling! The inside of the card was stamped with purple ink with a phrase from Ralph Waldo Emerson with another purple butterfly and bling bling!!!

Now, every birthday girl needs to get a gift --- this little handbag was cut from Plantin with the chocolate paper from Sweet Treats with butterflies cut from the Alphabet built-in cartridge on my E2 with the larger butterfly cut from Once Upon a Princess which was glitzed with butterflies, purple stickles, purple ribbon, and rhinestones!!! As to what is in the package --- shhhhhhh it's a surprise for Kari and I can't tell you - you just might tell her!!!!

Now, as to your prize --- I have some blog candy for a lucky person that leaves a comment and if you aren't already a follower, I would love to have your follow my blog! With Kari's love of butterflies, I have some butterfly stickers to add bling to your own projects!

Now, your next stop on this PurpleFuntastick Bonanza Bash for our friend, Kari is Erin.
