Sketch challenge

The challenge at Through the Purple Haze this week is a sketch

 I have rotated the sketch to the right and made this card today
Embossed mauve card with Crafts Too "butterflies" embossing folder.  Added piece of washi tape for the arrow.  Cut circle from purple card and embossed it with Cuttlebug "Daisies" and attached to the mauve card and over the piece of washi tape.  Added strip washi tape down left side and two pieces of twine down the middle.  Printed Fred She Said digi "Emma the Caroling Angel" on white and coloured with makers.  Sponged edges with distress ink. Layered her over purple circle.  Printed out greeting from Fred She Said "Angel and Christian Sentiments" and layered on top.  Added flowers and brads.  Layered all onto purple card.

I also want to enter this card into The Crafter's Cafe challenge 28 No designer paper
