When I Grow Old I Will Wear Purple!

This is an A4 sheet designed so my mum can frame it
(If she likes it?)
For mums 60th I did a card with the a quote about 'When she grows old she can wear purple'
She asked me to do one that she can frame with the poem by Jenny Joseph.
I used one of the Murray and Ethel Stamps coloured with glitter satura and Tria pens
The dotty paper is some Christmas paper from a lilac and purple pack
The circles were made in word as was the text, printed onto penalized card and then cut out.
I have put faux stitching on the circles and around the poem.
The blue ribbon at the bottom has stitching on it and the ribbon at the top has swirls.
I got all the ideas from the Challenge sites below
As usual any project as long as there is stitching on your card faux or real - it's up to you!
Was a sketch with lots of circles I have added a bit but hope it still counts
The colour combination is Lilac and Blue
For this weeks extra option it is to used ribbons and swirls, but this is not compulsory
Please so check out the above blogs there are amazing creations on them
