A New Card

Last night I got a large order of mixed cardstock in the mail. It was awesome except for the bright yellow, purple, mauve and bubblegum pink - colors I hate. Last night I couldn't sleep so I tried to brainstorm ways to use purple that wouldn't make me want to up-chuck. Then I remembered that my MIL has sent me a variety of purple quilt scraps and that I needed to make my 2sketches4you card. So here it is:





I had a really good time sewing a fabric flower and didn't mind using purple for the first time ever. I am even assembling my scraps into a scrapbook page.

Materials Used:

Bazzil Cardstock
American Crafts Paper
Chalk Ink
Swirl Embossing Folder and Cuttlebug
Making Memories tiny letters, AC sticker
Gingham fabric from JoAnn, Button by Autumn Leaves

Great job on the sketch - love the colour combo and that flower is scrummy - I too am not a fan of purple but I like when it is used with lime...as you have done

Adorable card.
I totally get the color 'challenge' thing with purple. This is EXACTLY how I feel about orange. I hate orange.
I do love purple though. And the fabric was a nice touch.
