Purple Rain

Good evening peeps!  First things first......  How gorgous is this image?? She is called 'Let it Rain', one of the new releases over in Saturated Canary's Etsy Shop.   If you haven't seen them yet get yourself over there and be prepared to part with your cash because you won't be able to help it!
I was already aware of the challenge on Make it Colourful which this week is to colour with purple and another challenge from Charisma Cardz which is to make a card inspired by a song.  So when I saw this image it just jumped at me.....  I instantly thought of 'Purple Rain' by Prince.  Yeah its an oldie, but its still a goodie!!!  Purple is one of my favorite colours and seem to have coloured so much with it lately.  (I always seem to use more purple around Halloween anyway).  With such a beatuiful image I wanted to keep things quite simple.  So she is just mounted on purple card from my stash.  I have used a chipboard bookplate from Tando creations (coloured purple to match) with just a simple 'Miss you' stamp.  I used the same card to again with some white mesh (no idea what it is called, sorry!) for the underlying stripe.  I finished the card off with a couple of diamond crystal head pins from Create and Craft and 3 purple drops. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
I hope you like
