A Purple Challenge...

Christina from Card Creations and More by C invited me to be a guest designer for her latest challenge.  There were two requirements - use purple and try something new.  I learned something important...evidently I don't like purple.  I thought I liked purple, but if you look in my patterned paper - it's pretty purple-free.  I also tried an S-fold card for the first time.  If you'd like to join Christina's newest challenge, you can find all of the information HERE!  Thanks again Christina!  Make sure to hop over to her blog and check out her beautiful cards!

Materials Used:
  • Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 - scored at 2 1/8 and 5 1/2
  • Patterned Paper - DCWV Flower Shower Stack (yes, I'm still bound and determined to use all of it.)
  • Purse cut at 3" from Paisley
  • Cuttlebug A2 Paisley Embossing Folder
  • Sentiment: Scrappy Moms Sweet Somethings set
  • Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - White
  • Color Box Liquid Chalk Ink - lavendar
  • Jewels - $1 section at Target
  • EK Success Corner Rounder

I'm still sick - boo!  How long do you think you can survive on Saltine's and ginger ale?  :)
