Purple Bloom























Good morning, I have a very purple card for you today.....lol..... it is inspired by this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, CIC45. This weeks bright cupcake was suggested by Lori King a reader of Hope Stamps Eternal. Can you believe I tried not to be inspired by the purple....lol..it didn't work. I used the Basicgrey Designer Paper Sugar Rush. I used the Martha Stewart Punch to scallop the edge, then I sponged it and added Zva Creative Pearls. The flower is a Basicgrey Bloomer.
I also used the sketch from Skipping Stones Designs, SSD010. I hope you can play along with us this week, you can find all sorts of ways to be inspired, it is totally up to you and your creativity.
This week is the first challenge with all of the new Sweeties, make sure to check out the Delicious treats everyone has created!

Paper: Bazzil Avalanche, Basicgrey Sugar Rush Designer Paper
Ink: SU Almost Amethyst and Riding Hood Red

I created this card for the 411 color challenge and sketch challenge. I also played along with Marie McClellan From Boots to Rubber Stamps, B2S03 again, she has brought to you this bright sitting area to be inspired. I was inspired by the bold and brightness of the room. I wanted my card to have that same feel, really make a statement. I used the Verve set Feeling Groovy, the Faith sentiment is from Micheal's $1 spot. I have the flower stems coming out of the word. I cut the blooms out, added a red brad, and stickles. This fabulous designer paper is My Mind's Eye Love Me Do, I think this is sooooo sweet...red and yellow paired are awesome! I hope you can play along with some of these challenges today....enjoy!
