More Purple!


This was a card I made last week for a friend's birthday, which happens to be today, and when I went to post it here I realised it fits in with this week's Less is More challenge - Predominantly Purple! I started off with a white card blank and hand-embossed a frame using my Hougie board. Then, using a post-it mask, I stamped the swirly stamp from Everything Eleanor inside the frame. The butterflies were cut and embossed with the Beuatiful Wings Embosslits folder, in Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Pretty in Pink with some tiny Basic Pearls added and placed on the swirls. A strip of the new Elegant Eggplant Polka Dots ribbon was fixed across the card and the sentiment, from Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess set, was punched with the Scallop Square punch and positioned on top of the ribbon.
