More purple...

I don't usually grab for purple (although I do like the color) and this is the second card in a week that is "focally" purple.


Here are the challenges that go with it:

  • The sketch is the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Friday Sketch (I think that's the right title.....click the link! LOL)
  • 365 Cards asked for a card from ONE manufacturer. This one is all Close to My Heart. The only thing that isn't CTMH was the adhesive! LOL But please don't drool on the papers - they were a special offering and are no longer available - sorry!
  • Flourishes Timless Tuesday asked for a SQUARE card. This one is 5.5" x 5.5"
  • Last, but certainly not least, we had a Do-It-Yourself Scrapbooking Weekend over at Apron Strings Designs this weekend and we were asked for Cut-Outs. The flower was cut out of patterned paper. Now, I always boast about the ASD Scrapbooking kits, but did you know they also have Card Kits? You should go check them out!
  • *ETA* - I am going to throw this one (not pun intended) into the Color Throwdown as well! Their challenge, which is Lavender Lace, Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant, probably came out 6 hours after I completed this card and I am not sure I will get to do this color challenge again and it happens to be the PERFECT colors - I must have been clairvoyant on this one!

And that will do it for this card...might have one more before the end of the night!
