A Quick Card.....
Every time I do a card that has anything purple on it, I'm inspired by a blog friend Selma Stevenson. She loves purple and a lot of her cards incorporate this color. I love purple, but seldom use it and I don't know why. I needed a quick card and had just received a new Marianne designs embossing and cutting folder and so I began the process. What color do I use behind the cut out part and what kind of flowers....well I came up with purple and then some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers tinted with Ranger Distress Ink and a few leaves from there too and the card is ready to go. My new embossing folder came from Joan's Creations. This is an Anja design and so elegant I think. Years ago I used to purchase embossing stencils designed by Anja. Now I can get the best of both worlds! This could also be a Valentine card if you used pink or red behind this.....hmmm....maybe I will be showing you a red one soon!
So what are you doing today? I have some house work to do today. I'd rather be playing, but sometimes you just have to do a little dusting. Well I hope your day is a good one and that you are productive and maybe find a little time to create. As always, remember to "Breathe"!
