Oh That Challenging Purple!!

A big Monday welcome to you! And welcome to our Picture Perfect Creations color combo of Tempting turquoise, Whisper white, Melon mambo, and Concord crush. I hope this finds everyone safe now that Irene has passed.


Any color combo that contains purple is very challenging to me!!! As much as I hate to admit it though, these colors really look fantastic together!!!!! I used from Clear Dollar Stamps a pre-colored digital stamp set called Spring Hydrangea. CDS also has coordinating digital papers, the SVG file for your Cricut, as well as this stamp in clear acrylic. I printed it up 3 times so I could cut it out and layer it up. So, are those paper scraps of dp you ask...why yes they are!!!! I used a PaperTrey Ink sentiment that I mounted on my block curved to fit inside the nestie circle. Fun, fun, fun!!! Now be sure and play along with us at Picture Perfect Creations this week. Help me start to love purple!!!

Linda you made the color combo look easy with the purple. At first I went what but found that the colors were awesome. I love the flower image you chose to use with it. Oh and your pattern paper, stitching and ribbon are sooo yummy! Wishing you an amazing long weekend...do you have a long weekend? Anyway here is to lots of laughter. Hugs.
