Stamp Simply Color Challenge 126


















Hey everyone! I wanted to play in Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge, which is to use the colors Purple and Green in our creation. So, I made this card using Kaiser Lilac Avenue DP, which I bought from Sharon. Both the top and bottom came from the Lilac Avenue DP. I used the Cyclamen stamp from Flourishes Calendar Set 3 and colored the image with my Copic Markers. I sponged around the image using SU's Barely Bananna. I cut the image out with my Spellbinder's Labels 4, added some trim, glittered butterflies, pearls, and a computer generated sentiment.

The card was made for my good friend Debbie whose favorite color is purple! Happy Birthday Debs!!

After we had about 5 inches of snow on Friday (did get the day off), I have a whole new appreciation for people who go through worse weather than what we had...I don't know how you do it!! Gotta run...take care and thanks for your visit!!
