to Almost Amethyst! I must admit that I haven’t been a big user of this purple but the Tea Party DSP has given me a new appreciation for this shade. Yesterday over at Stampin’ Celebration, they posted this fabulous inspiration:
Beautiful, isn’t it??!! As previously stated, I don’t have a lot of purple but Tea Party seemed to fit the bill nicely with the Saffron and Celery that are also in the paper. I saw the newest sketch from the OCC Sketch Blog, their OCCSC16. Love this one!!
The big flowers on the DSP and the sketch seemed to be made for each other. I cut out a couple of the flowers and pulled out my lovely Celery satin ribbon. The scallop border will be available again soon (I got it FREE during Sale-a-bration!!) and I really like the lacy look it gives. Here is the end result:
If your computer is like mine, the Amethyst looks a bit blue but I promise it really is purple!! Something about the afternoon lighting in my house, I guess. All the work on this card was really done by the DSP. I put a matching strip at the bottom of the inside and cut out another flower to put in there. Thanks for taking a look today (and don’t forget to give these challenges a try!). Have a great weekend!
