A Dash of Purple Fairy Dust!


I found a bit of time to stamp on Sunday and made a card for Pam's colorful TSG challenge. I don't think I would have ever paired these colors together... nope... definitely wouldn't! However I do like how my card turned out and I'm sure the rest of the Trendsetters playing along have created some fab-u-lous cards (and I'm betting you will too)! For all the deets on the challenge and links to those playing along visit the TSG blog!

But before heading over there check out my card. Please... pretty please? I'd love to know what you think. I did try a couple of new things while making this card. I created hills of grass by snipping Kiwi Kiss cardstock with my paper snips.

And I also added a fun ribbon treatment by only creating a couple of big pleats on the left side of the card. I really like how this turned out! Then to finish I plopped a big pink crocheted flower with a button center on the lower left. I really need to make more of these flowers... my stash is running low!

So what do you think? Are you inspired? Will you be playing along with the challenge? I think you want to. I really do! ;)
