Pretty in Purple*

Hello! Here's a card I made with "A Beautiful Life", I don't think I'd done the tulips in these purples yet! (BV02, BV04, BV13) Cardbase is Lovely Lavender. I punched some wave flourishes out of Grass Green, I am really enjoying and getting a lot of mileage out of this new punch! I popped up the butterflies and did the gradient on the word beautiful with my markers, I love this effect!

I am on vacation with family this week, so hopefully I can get a few more posts up, but if not, see you soon!

oh PS! having fun shopping with that awesome coupon?? :0 what'd ya get? I'd love to know!

*Just doesn't quite sound the same, does it? ;)

What a pretty card! Purple & green are my favorite colors :)
YES, I used my GKD coupon immediately! I've had my eye on the "Blessed Is The Season" stamp set for a while now, so this was the perfect opportunity to purchase it. Yay!!! I can hardly wait to receive it. I started making my Christmas cards a few weeks ago, so this set will be put to use right away.

I love it in purple! How did you do the word in gradient? Did you ink the words on the stamp? Did you use Copics for that? I love it. The coupon is spent on 2 stamp sets that I did not have - Winter Foliage and A Year of Leaves. Enjoy the week with family!

Well I do like purple better than pink, I'm not a 'girlie girl' so I like how it sounds. The card, as usual, is fantastic. Love the gradient purple on 'beautiful'. What a great idea:) So glad I found your blog and started following, you give me such inspiration! Love your stamp sets too:)
