When I'm Down...

Hi there!! It's been a beautiful week here in Washington with sunshine every day!!  I think this is our first long stretch of sunshine all summer! 



Have a card that I made for the current color challenge over at JayGee's Nook to use the color purple.  I have been eyeing the monthly challenges there for awhile and finally got a chance this month to play along.    For this card I used some Stampin! Up Concord Crush patterned paper and cardstock and Ranger's Dusty Concord distress ink.  The pinwheel was created using the pinwheel die from My Favorite Things.  The sentiment is from the stamp set that comes with the die.   I have to admit that in my photo the color looks more blue then purple, but I promise you the color is purple.   The background was created using the Hero Arts design block Envelope Pattern.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Concord Crush; PP:  SU!; Ink:  Ranger Dusty Concord; Stamps:  Hero Arts & My Favorite Things; SU! punch; purple gems; My Favorite Things pinwheel die

This is fabulous Rosemary. I love the pinwheel - your choice of papers is perfect. I also really love the way you put those little notches at the end of the sentiment strip. So glad you got the chance to join us at Jay Gee's this month :)
