It's a purple week...

...with quite a few challenges asking for purple creations. I've been using it more anyway, thanks to a friend whose favourite colour is purple - I realized that I rarely use it. So, to add to my ALL FAIRIES ALL THE TIME I will now be working on ALL PURPLE ALL THE TIME. Well, maybe MORE PURPLE SOME OF THE TIME?

It's early, and I haven't had enough coffee just yet. Let's say it's that.

So, here's my purple card for the current Flourishes challenge. 



Supplies: Dahlia stamp from Flourishes; sentiment from PTI; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bic Markers; papers from Memory Box

The layout I quite like - it was one of  those 'I want to use this scrap!' inspired bits, but perhaps I will convert it to a sketch. I like the smidge of the larger-scale pattern peeking out.

xoxo,
Jessi

This is stunning! I hardly use purple myself! I was just thinking about that when I was making the short persons valentines! He was suppose to help, but he must have seen a squirrel! Ha ha!
