Violet Crush Cards

Hello my friends!
After a much needed break, the "Sistahs" are back 
with our first challenge of the year at "The Sisterhood"!
Just to make it easy on "ya all"  Lisa has chosen "Anything Goes" as our theme!
There is an added twist to add "Something New"!

Funny thing for me is, I have a hard time with anything goes as I can never!

Last year (I can say that I purchased a beautiful group of "cut-outs"
from KaiserCraft called "Violet Crush!
This little packet was/is full of the most beautiful little pieces of ephemera
and are so fun to put together to make cards with!!
My "new" is during black Friday weekend" I shopped for "me" and bought numerous
clearance EB folders, which I used for this project.

I got so carried away with my pretty little pieces that I made not one, but 2 cards.
all the images are popped up on both cards, and the second card I added some stickles
for a bit of sparkle!! 

Well, this was a quick post with quick cards and I invite you to join in
our fun challenge at The Sisterhood!!

Entering in the following challenges 
Tip Top Tuesday .... Keep It Simple (first card for entry)
Crafty Card Makers .... Something Old (ephemera) Something New (EB folder) 
Word Art Wednesday ....Anything Goes (2nd Card for entry)
