Purple Thinking of You


I thought I would post another non DT project again today. 
I love my new flower sets from Papertrey! It took me a while to color in this image, but I had a ton of fun doing it! I've been on a purple kick lately, mostly because I only have so many Copic colors. I have a small budget for stamping supplies each month and with Copics being so costly, I just can't get them all at one time. Patience is a virtue I never gained, so it is killing me that I have to wait! I'm sure there are other girls who can relate =)
I thought this card would work perfect for a Mother's Day card. I have already made a pink one similar to this for that very reason. If you can't tell in the picture, I added DD Glitter to the edges of the Label One White Nestie. I really like the end result of this card!
I will be entering this card into the Stampin' B's Challenge (Mother's Day), Creative Card Crew (April Showers Bring May Flowers), Gingersnap Creations (Botanical), Fun with Shapes (Mother's Day- Shape), YNS Challenge (Dots), Digi Doodle Shops Challenge (Anything Goes) and last but not least Crafty Ho's Challenge (Mother's Day). 

Thanks for popping in! Have a great rest of the week!

Hi Jenny- Ohhh, I love your card, and yes I can see the glittered edges. This card is absolutely fabulous! You are so talented. :)

Beautiful and I love all the purple. I can relate to the craft budget. Mine would be significantly larger if my family didn't insist on eating! High maintenance!! :)

Such a pretty card and your coloring is fantastic!!! I also love the punched borders!! I can totally relate to the limited budget thing. There are so many fabulous products out there and only so much moolah in the old pockets :)

The time you spent coloring was worth it - your flower is beautiful.

Benzi said...

Glad you joined the StampinB this week with your gorgeous Mother's Day card.
