Obviously, I need photography lessons

Ok, ok.. I know I don't take pictures well. Hopefully you can at least get the idea and pretend that the picture isn't crooked. A friend of mine fell and shattered her wrist while roller skating (Hi Ellen). The sources in the know told me that one of her favorite colors is purple, so.... here is my tribute to purple!

This is a very simple card, you will come to notice that those are my favorite kind to make.


Stampin' Up! Cardstock: Blush Blossom, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum and Whisper White

Stampin' Up! Ink: Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant

Stamp Sets: Stampin' Up! Garden Whimsy and Hero Arts Clear (H)

Accessories: Stampin' Up! Fine Cosmo glitter, Scor-Pal

I learned how to do the scoring on the Pale Plum base and the Whisper White from the wonderful GinaK. Have you seen her blog? Definitely worth your while if you are into papercrafts! This was from the Scor-Pal Tutorial #1. You can find all her tutorials on the left hand side of the page. I will give you this warning, if you don't have a Scor-Pal yet, you will want one soon... I promise!!!

CUTE CUTE CARD! I like that when I click on your picture it opens up and I can zoom in on it :)

p.s. You might want to shrink the pics down just a tad so when they are clicked on to zoom in there will be less scrolling back and forth/up and down. I use Photoshop Elements and use the save for web option -- then reduce it anwhere from 25 - 50% Not that I do it right...but it has seemed to work ok so far :) Can't wait to see more of your creations!!
