pop purple    Merci pop of purple-

So, I told you I would randomly pick somone’s color suggestion for a “pop” of color using the black & white combo again.

I chose Colleen, and here is what she wrote:

Oh man…your cards are stunners! I love this challenge…I will have to try it out. Now…what color can I use…(purple…yes!)

I chose that one for 2 reasons

1) Purple is my favorite color

2) I rarely use it in papercrafting! WHY? I have no IDEA!

Lovely Lilac, Basic Black, Whisper White.

Glitter pens, Heidi Swap jewels, corner rounder guard off.

So this card was simple. Im sure you are sick of me using my glitter pens, and jewels with this stamp but I seriously cannot STOP! I’m sorry! I just love it! I used the sets from My Favorite Things Stamps called- Behind the Scenes for the polka dot paper and flower block, also the Merci is from the thank you block! Cool thing is since its an acrylic set you can easily ink one word and it it perfect first try!

Ribbon is a lollipop ribbon I got from Jody’s ribbon share. Which reminds me, I haven’t joined one in a while I may have to check her out! LOL!

Now here is the TWISTED Sketch. The purple card above actually was created AFTER I made this card.

I always LOVED this sentiment! This one is Simply Sentiments by Lizzie Anne Designs. If you notice the sketch is simply flipped. It gives it a whole new look! I love this card. Instead of a scalloped edge I kept it straight and used brads. Ribbon was tied in a different spot. I LOVE tying my ribbon through the center of a flower.

The cardstock and ink is by Bazzill. I get all those goodies at All That Scraps. She’s got some cool new goodies too. Mega punches are coming in soon, and some are already available. You should check out the Bazzill inks, they are phenomenal!!! It has a bit of shimmer! This is the Bazzill Bling cardstock.

Paper is Sugar collection from Memory Box. OMG! Its delicious paper. Im so in love with it. Ribbon is by American Crafts which I score a bunch of cool ribbon at AC MOORE. Its a good 45 minutes from me but was worth the trip. I went there when Jason went to an electronics expo. Anyway-I want you to try either this sketch or one of your own and flip it! Link both cards back here! And thanks for the suggestions on colors to try! I could do black, white and a pop of color forever!

Check in tomorrow for my Saturday Sketch!
