Pretty in Purple

Today I am playing along with Can You Case It’s Color Challenge…..


I must admit that I do love working with neutral colors, so I really looked forward to this challenge and color combo.

Some of my favorite stamps were used on this little card.  I stamped the background with the Hardwood stamp in Crumb Cake ink.

The floral spray is from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set and is stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I added tiny pearls to the center of the flowers.  The butterfly, from the Butterfly Basics stamp set, is stamped in Crumb Cake and cut out using the Butterflies Die.  I also cut one out in Crumb Cake cardstock and layered the stamped image over it for a little more dimension.  Pearls were also added to butterfly’s body.  The Crumb Cake ribbon really pulls all these elements together.

I used a sentiment from the Butterfly Basic stamp set for the inside.  Since there is no sentiment on the front, this card could be used for a variety of occasions.  Perhaps a birthday, get well or just a simple thinking of you or hello.  These types of cards are very handy to have. I think this card would also be pretty in a variety of color combinations.  I will have to give it a try!

I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by….until next time,
