Less is More week 38 #3

I love looking at the blogs of the other Limettes, often I look but don't comment as I often find typing very painfull (I have 'mouse' shoulder and elbow!) so I look on the i-pad... , try and visit a few new peeps each week.
This card is for my 'baby' daugher Lydia who is soon to be 17.. when she was tiny (she is still tiny actually thanks to the coeliac) she loved a purple velvet dress from Next that she got for her 2nd birthday.  No matter what I dressed her in, every morning she hid those clothes and came downstairs dressed in the little purple dress, purple tights, purple shoes.  Over the years she had many purple velvet dresses, tops, trousers, t-shirts. I found  the original dress the other day whilst sorting out my 'treasure box' in the attic Ahhh.
When she got to 11 she changed to khaki & black clothes but she still has a purple bedroom!
Enough of the trip down memory lane..
I would like to enter Less is more.
I used: Purple card blank from stash, white card embossed with polka dot folder, Impression Obsession stamp stamped onto purple polka dot dp from stash, I shamlessly CASED/PINCHED the idea from Anne F I emossed the Impression Obsession stamp with purple embossing powder. sentiment craftworks,
