SR#2 & MTSC56

Here is another card with just a little stamping. I have been creating a least 2 cards each day, and I think my MOJO is slowing down. It is another one with a funny picture. What is it with purple -- I can't seem to take a good picture.


I love this DP, and I saw that the Stampin' Royalty Challenge was a color challenge -- Elegant Eggplant, Rich Raspberry, and Pale plum. I knew I could put together a card with not much stamping. I decided to use Mercy's Sketch too -- 'cuz I thought it would show off the DP really well.

I have been trying to do more bows with buttons, but I think I need to practice a little more. Small bows seem to be more difficult for me. (Does anyone have any hints?) Put some thick ribbon in my hands and I can make a beautiful bow. I think it is from "back in the day" when I did a lot of floral arrangements. And Christmas tree toppers -- I love doing those big loopy bows.

Stamps: Well Scripted
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum, Cottage Wall DP
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Extras: Scallop trim border punch, Razzleberry polka dot ribbon, Latte button, dimensionals
