Purple Apologies

Hi, everyone!
A quick post form me this morning, before I head out for my Monday morning errands!
I love my Meljen's Designs images, and never seem to play with them enough, so I am trying to pull them out more. This week, I have this Sweet Little Donkey image on my card. He's being entered into the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Meljen's Designs Blog.

I decided I needed to add an apology card to my stash of cards. Sometimes we just need to say 'sorry', and I thought, "who can resist this little sweetheart?!". So, I colored him up, and used some of my scrap Recollections papers to create the wavy layers. The little purple dot is a melted pony bead (see my quick tutorial here). I used my Spellbinders dies to create the curves.

Paper: Scraps of Recollections
