Crushing on the Concord

This week's challenge #18 over on Inkspirational was to use this gorgeous colour combo below and as I need to send a card to my uncle and aunt to reply to their wedding invite I thought I would use it as my aunt-to-be is a huge fan of all things purple. I also used the sketch from SC243 as well but kept it fairly simple.

I was also one of April's winners over on Inkspirational so a huge thank you to all the ladies who chose my card.

And here's my card.


Stamps: Flowering Flourishes, Curly Cute both from Stampin' Up

Papers: Concord Crush (Retired), Old Olive, Whisper White, In Colors 2010-12 DSP Stack all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Old Olive, Peach Parfair (Retired) both from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Floral Fusion Sizzlits Die from Stampin' Up, Buttons from stash

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is so bright and fun! I always love polka dots and I like how you stamped the foliage and then layered die flowers on top. Such a great use of the colors! So glad that you joined us at Inkspirational!
