Purple Olivia

This is a card that I have made for my elderly neighbour's Granddaughter.  She loves purple so that made it really easy because it's my favourite colour as well.

The image, the little heart embellishment and the sentiment are all stamps from Jayne Nestorenko's Patchwork Polly - Olivia collection and the papers are from my paper stash (sorry I don't have clue where they came from originally).  The only other embellishment is some twine.  Quite a simple card really, I was caught by surprise and had to put it together rather quickly so no time to let glue dry - hence not many embellishments.

I did decorate the inside of my card but had written in it before I took the photographs so no photo I'm afraid.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks Challenge 98 - Stripes
Let's Ink It Up Challenge 25 - All Girl
One Stitch at a Time Challenge 122 - Anything Goes
Platypus Creek Digitals Challenge 11 - Things with Wings
That Craft Place Challenge - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Dust it off..... (my stamps and papers are all at least a year old)
Simon Says Stamp & Show - No Rules!
Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenge 47 - Monochromatic
Love to Create Challenge 24 - 3 of Something (3 different papers, 3 different stamps)
Stamp n Doodle - Monochrome

Well, this was a quickly made card and rather a quick post to day, my eldest has finished school now and all I seem to do is taxi him around - very time consuming.  I hope you are all having a good week.

I think purple looks so lovely on cards, but I really struggle to work with it. It seems like no other colour coordinates with it when I use it!! This is subtle perfection!


Hi Pauline
