Shades of Purple

Hello there my friends!
A new challenge is up and running at Double D
and this time it is being hosted by Team Darlene.
The theme is
'Shades of Purple'
which I just happen to know is Dar's favorite color!
She has put together the awesome tile board below to get your mojo going!


I have to admit, my card design came together for me
in the middle of one of my 'sleepless' nights..!



I used a very old color block stamp
that I stamped in 3 colors of purples,
then added a fussy cut butterfly to each.

The sentiment is another oldie,
one of my first stamps I had purchased from Unity Stamp.
Sometimes I like to use the bigger, bolder
sentiments to really make a statement.



I know the 3rd butterfly looks a little off center,
but believe me it is spot on
(that's because I moved it after I took the photos..lol)!!

I added 3 sequins to finish it off.
I know they look pink in the picture,'but they are really a lavender color.
So there you have it, my 'shades of purple'.

So pop on over to Double D Challenges
and see what the Design Teams have to inspire you.
There always is a fabulous prize being offered, just for joining in with us!

Gosh, I have those sleepless nights, but I'm too tired to stamp. Some nights my brain just won't shut down. Anyway, sure wish I could do such awesome work on those nights. Love how you arranged the layout. Very pretty! On my purple card I noticed after I took the photo that I forgot to put glitter on one of the flower buds. Sheesh!
