A Tough Kind of Purple

This was for today's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS, to use Orchid Opulence on your card. It's weird, but I LOVE purple! It's my favorite color, but honestly, I NEVER use THIS particular purple. If I use purple I grab either Lovely Lilac or Lavender Lace, but never Orchid Opulence. So, I thought I'd use some of my DCWV Pocket Full of Posies paper to compliment Orchid Opulence. This card is a lot like the one I posted yesterday with the butterflies and Basic Grey paper. I was in a patterned paper kind of mood again and the layout from yesterday was on my brain. I really need to get my creative juices flowing again. I think I've been so wrapped up in choreographing this show that my brain just doesn't work creatively for anything else! Maybe it's time to switch my stamp sets! LOL I think I told you at some point that I have a "makeshift" craft room in the back part of my kitchen. Since I can't get up to my 3rd floor craft room with the kids, I brought about 10 stamp sets downstairs and various supplies and embellishments. Well, maybe my brain needs some new stamp sets to work with! I say new because a lot of my sets that are up in my craft room (and there are A LOT) haven't been used in a long time, so they would be NEW again! :) Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a beautiful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Remembering You; Ink- Orchid Opulence, VersaMagic Eggplant; Paper- DCWV Pocket Full of Posies, Red; Accessories- Large oval punch, ribbon from Walmart, paper piercer, purple gel pen, purple Stickles.

I like this color and challenged myself to use this more a while back! Your card is darling! Great match with the pattern paper. Love those corners and flowers!

Very nice - I like how you stamped the flowers in the background with no outlines too! And the purple dots are great!
