I shall wear Purple!!!

I am sure you have all heard the poem: When I am old. I shall Wear Purple!!!  Well Flossie from Just Inklined brings that poem to mind therefore, I colored her to match:

Flossie Bumblethorpe, was so  much fun to color with copic markers.  I added a trio of tiny rhinestones, two to her glasses and one to her dress neckline.  The dp is a  new Basic Grey paper pack, called Green at Heart,  I picked up at Archivers a few weeks ago 
The red roses are hand made using 2 1/2 inch squares of cs which I  cut in a spiral circle and made in about 10 minutes.  I added some green leaves to the roses.  The purple grosgrain ribbon was added to the dp layer and a bow was attached. 
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to drop by next Monday for the next Just Inklined Blog Hop.  I am the  Hostess this month so be sure to stop by here at 9:00 am Monday morning to begin the Hop!!
