Celebrate (ssnotime44)

Sharon's (notimetostamp) Stamp Simply weekend challenge was to use purple and a flower (or flowers) on a card. More information on her challenge may be found here. I did use a flower and it is purple! The base card is Elegant Eggplant with an embossed layer of white. The ribbon is also Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon. I got the flowers from Pinky who was my big elephant for the Challenge Chasers White Elephant Stampede. A photo of my goodies with a list of what I received may be found here. I layered two of the flowers and used an Ice Circle Rhinestone Brad in the center. It was adhered with a Pop-up Glue Dot. The frame was a stamp (Combine Resources International) that came from CostCo. It came in a case with about eight pigment ink pads and many stamps in different sizes. I colored the frame with Pale Plum and Elegant Eggplant using a Blender Pen. I stamped the sentiment with Eggplant as well and popped up the panel with Dimensionals. This would have been a quickie card had it not been for coloring in the frame.
  • Stamps: Sweet Serendipity, CRI Frame (CostCo)
  • Papers: Elegant Eggplant, GP White
  • Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum
  • Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF, Snips, Elegant Eggplant GG Ribbon, 2 layers purple flowers (unknown source), Ice Circle Rhinestone Brad
