There are a lot of purple cards showing up on blogs this week - not because everyone suddenly loves purple - in fact, many stampers (including myself!) are saying that they don't really like or usually use purple!
So here's my contribution - I used Winter Wisteria for the bird ornament that I cut with a coordinating die, Royal Velvet for the card base (although it looks kind of like navy blue in my pic?!), and I used a piece of purple Celtic Square digital DP cut with a Tipped Tops Die. I even got in Lilac bakers twine!
Here's a close up of my free hanging ornament - I punched a hole through the DP, threaded the twine through the hole to the back and held it in place with the brad.
and here's the inside - I put a Wisteria layer on the darker card base so you can see the sentiment and write a salutation!
All this for the Cas-ology Cue Card - Purple challenge!
as well as the Merry Monday challenge to use an ornament on your card.
And I had to get this card posted today as the deadline for one of the challenges is midnight tonight!
I stamped the celestial map on a piece of white card stock. Then I sponged the whole panel with Ranger Distress Stormy Sky ink. I sprayed some water on it and dried it with my heat gun to get that water drop look. I black embossed the sentiment on a brushed silver square rounded the corners and added some enamel dots. I adhered the sentiment over the map with foam dots.
