Mother's Day card- Quietfire, Graphic 45 and Spellbinders

Hello Crafters!

The Card Concept announced their challenge, Mono Chromatic Purple, and my first thought was that I never use purple.  But I guess that is the point of challenges- challenge yourself to do new things.  Mother's Day is coming up (have my theme), purple is the challenge (color...check!) and Cardabilities provided the sketch (sweet!).
Working with all purple felt weird.  I don't recall ever running purple paper through any of my dies (shocker!) and I was not sure I even had ribbon or twine.  Luckily I have seam binding and Dusty Concord Distress Stain.  Deep in a drawer was purple twine.  Graphics 45 Sweet Sentiments and Secret Garden has purple paper.  Go figure!  I had purple stuff in my crafty room but never paid attention.  You learn something new every day.  :)

Hope you enjoyed my purple card.  Thanks for all of the Challenge blogs out there that challenge us!  
Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Oh, yes, I'd say you were up to this challenge. Love the purple. Love the card!

  3. I have to smile at the found purple items, because ME TOO I hardly ever use purple! It seems to be the hardest colour to match, and so what supplies I have languish too. Score on finding such great bits & bobs to make it work!

  4. Beautiful card, I like the doily and die combo - perfect match. Thanks for joining us in the SweetStamps challenge for Mom.
