Bulbs and Seeds 1912



This is for the Crafty Secrets weekly challenge over on SCS. We were to use purple. This is easy for me, because I love purple, and use it all the time! Here I paired it with my favorite green of all time: Always Artichoke, which looks good with ALL purples. Honestly!! I get my sweet little glass gems from Creative Cuts and More. I also get my Bazzill Bling there!! This sweet purple is Infatuation.

The Spellbinders dies, Antique Brass Glimmer Mist and the Crafty Secrets Birds & Botanicals Images & Journal Notes all come from Creative Play Stamps. I LOVE these booklets, the images are all just beautiful!! They are also so quick and easy to work with!! As much as I enjoy coloring, I don't always have time because I watercolor, and because I'm slow. It would probably take me close to an hour to paint this picture, and unfortunately, it would not be this pretty!

Such a nice and spring-like card! Purple...it isn't a color that I typically work with {it's my dd's fav color!}...it is gorgeous teamed up with the artichoke. I actually just picked up some purple envies and cards from Paper Source to make my dd's birthday cards/thank you's...
