Oooh - Am I late or am I early?

I started this card for last week's Totally Papercrafts challenge but once again life got in the way. Last week's challenge was Clean and Simple,  as I have my little bat charm hanging there at least this card crosses over and will fall into this weeks category - Charming
The Secret Crafter want's Clean and Simple this time (not sure about the clean tee-hee, but it was certainly simple - one of the quickest cards I've ever made.
Craftalicious want Purple and Green so I think I'm OK there.

I decided it was time I inked up one of my Stampotique images, this one is called Angel. I stamped her with Archival Jet black ink, lightly swiped copics over her, embossed her with the Cuttlebug distressed stripes folder and inked the edges with black soot distress ink. Plonked her on dp by Bo Bunny and added a little bat charm to the ribbon, both from my stash. Nearly forgot - I added some black gems at the bottom to try and balance the colours out.
Clean and Simple ???
Quick and Easy  - most definetly.

I struggled to upload this card and I keep getting the message can't connect when I try and comment, is anyone else having this problem, or have I been singled out?

Love the orange ribbon which works so so well with this. Delightful way that charm echoes the wings on the image. Very very interesting this & very effective with those distressed stripes.

PS - also having trouble with commenting - for some reason it's the Scandinavian blogs that are troublesome for me - no don't think you've been singled out, unless I've also been singled out as when I've laboriously typed my Swedish up the whole thing then vanishes...... Blogger?? Explorer??? Vista???? or Microsoft???? of just a cheeky imp playing havoc with us.
Much love & do take care with life.
