Fabulous Friday

Good Morning!  Happy Friday!

I have a card to share with you today that I created using Deedee's Digis and other stamps.  This is for the Crafts 4 Eternity challenge - which is a great sketch, your favorite color and your favorite image.  Since every image I own whether digi or rubber stamp are my favorites, that part of the challenge was easy.  My favorite color is purple (just not royal purple) and the sketch was great to work with.


I had a little trouble with my favorite color - I love purple but its funny that I don't have any dp in purple shades so I set out to create my own.  First I embossed a background and hit it lightly with ink and a sponge.  Next for the two strips I stamped polka dots and for those of you who know me, know that I consider polka dots a color.  The other strip I stamped some words across it that you can't see, but I think it adds a really nice texture.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Lavender Lace, White (Recollections)
Stamps/Ink:  Polka Dot cross-hatch (unk), CTMH, Poppies (SNSS), Lavender Lace
Copics:  BV00, BV02, BV04, C8, C10, R27, R29, Y06, Y11, YG63, YG67
Tools:  Cuttlebug, Birds & Swirls embossing folder, Circle cutters (CM), sponge
Embellishments:  white grosgrain ribbon (Offray)

I hope you enjoy my card and I hope it brings a smile to the face of the person I am sending it to.  Enjoy your Friday.  Thank you for visiting me.

Melissa this is so cute! I love seeing purple on cards. It seems there are very few companies who have puprle in their paper lines! But I love the colour and the background you have created. This is a beautiful card!

This is just too cute, Melissa! How clever to make your own background papers. The color scheme is very lovely -- I'm not usually a fan of purple, but you have made it wonderful!
