Purple team challenge .

Good morning peeps, well today sees the start of fresh challenge over at 
Eclectic Ellapu. The theme is inspired by a song and its the turn of the purple team. But before I show my card I just wanted to say the pink team did a fantastic job last week. And thanks to everyone for entering. 
So inspired by a song was not something I found easy and played it safe with Umbrella by Rihanna. I used some stamping up papers and a Clare Curd stamp. Hope you like it. Please do hop over and join in xx
