Feeling Purple Today!


Hello Everyone, I'd love to share this card with you that I've made for the new sketch challenge being give over at Delightful Inspiration{ from the heart}.


For some reason, I was feeling like purple today.  Do you ever walk into your craft space and have a certain colour hit you?  Or maybe, it's just me.
I chose to work with this wonderful Meet Anneke image and coloured her with my pencil crayons.  I matted her to some purple paper with a bit of inking.  Then I cut panels of some Recollections paper and then embossed the background purple paper to add some texture.  The ribbon is from my collection and I added a new crocheted double flower (they're so easy to make!) and added a deep purple brad to the centre.  I did leave off a sentiment so that this card could be used for various reasons.
Well, it's quite simple but I enjoyed putting it together!  I do hope you'll come join us at Delightful Inspiration {from the heart}!

Thank you for dropping by! Have a great day!

Love those purple's, I'm like you too when I would especially get up in the morning and the bell rings in my head on a certain project... My hubby says I dream more about crafts than him, LOL! Pretty crotchet flower!
