Pretty in Purple

     I am not sure why it took me so long to break down and  finally order some stamps from Lily of the Valley.  I admire them on a pretty regular basis as I travel throughout blogland. - they are soooo cute I debated over and over about which to get - which is probably why it took me so long to place the order. Since I have a friend with a Birthday soon I opted for the friends one!!! I knew I would be using purple and that worked out just great with the challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon RRR#22 (if you haven't visited this site you should they have awesome ribbon) . My friend has dark hair and wears lots of purple, and plum colors - I on the other hand tend to be a little bright in my clothing choices, hence the blond in pink. Couldn't help but bling it up a little and add a touch of ribbon (also a requirement for the challenge) ...as I wanted something 'girlie' looking!!  I finished off the inside of the card as well....Her birthday is in June, it is nice to be working a little in advance.  I ran my background paper through my CB in an EF it gives a fun texture to the paper - making it almost look like fabric.  Working with my copic's was fun!!!  I am also entering this in the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge for 'Sparkle and Bling', and the Paper Sundaes #64 challenge  'Childhood Memories'.



Supplies used:  Cardstock, Lily of the Valley Friends stamp, Memento ink, Copic markers, Multi liner, Spellbinders  Label 17, Rhinestones from Michael's, Ribbon, Stampabilities sentiment inside, Embossing folder.
