Inspired by Purple

This cute little card is brought to you by PURPLE!  =) 


This little pretty is an "all purpose" card I made from scraps on hand using a technique I learned at one of the booths at ScrapbookExpo.  

The base paper with the leaves is plain white and I stamped all over it randomly two shades of purple and a few touches of olive green for contrast.  

I then ran a tissue across the paper and the ink came right off the enamel design.  Cool huh?  

A scrap of solid purple and a scrap of lavender polka dot mounted on the white card stock framed it quite nicely I think.  

I tore it on a couple of edges just to give it a touch of distressing and I inked the edges of the lavender polka dot paper to tie it all together.  

I added a little button and a piece of twine just because!  =P  

The inside is blank right now waiting for a sentiment …. that is If I can manage to give the card away!  =P

And as always instead of doing what I should be doing here I am looking at images to add to the blog.  I was looking for something clever to inspire us to declutter and organize!  Gawd only knows I need it!  =D  

However, instead I just found something inspirational so I'm sharing that instead.  I think I may have to add it to my walls once I'm done organizing the scrap room and figure out what color paint I'm going to get on the walls!  =)

Oh and I just happen to have a decorative curtain rod I bought but never used AND the curtain rings.  I knew I would have another use for them!!!  

What I Love is the ability to display our layouts outside of a traditional scrapbook and not sitting stuck on a book shelf or unopened on a coffee table!  THAT is a travesty!  We pour our creativity and hearts and souls into our displays with the goal to share them with others, how better to do that than to display them on our walls!
