A Purple Card For My Friend


I have a friend whose favorite colour is purple so I just had to participate in this week's CR84FN challenge and make a card to send to her.  I combined it with this week's Fall To Layout.

This wonderful DP was my starting point - found it at Joannes a few years back and fell in love with it because of the leaf pattern.

I also go to play with my new MFT Butterfly die - happy sigh!  I crimped it for some texture as I didn't have a Starbucks sleeve to use like Maureen did.  Note to self:  keep the coffee sleeve next time you go to Starbucks LOL!

The white panel was just too plain and after trying various options, I settled on some horizontal scoring.  A few half pearls and a button later and I was good to go.  Now just have to pop it in the mail and smile because she will squeal with delight at receiving a purple card :) 




What's In It?
Paper:  Perfect Plum, DP from Joanne's, Kraft
Accessories:  PTI Medium Scalloped Die, Lacy Circle and Circle Nesties, MFT Butterfly Die, Scor-Pal, Crimper, Half Pearls, 5/8" Purple Satin Ribbon, Button, Twine, Glue Dots Dimensionals

oh, love that butterfly!! LOL, yes, and take an extra sleeve at SB too! LOL...although, your crimper seems to work very well...mine doesn't so I'm wondering if I'm not squeezing tight enough or if I need another one...it's a fiskars and must be 10 years old! LOL
