The Purple Hat

Hi everyone,

Today I want to share a card with you I made for the challenge at The Play Date Cafe. Ruby 2 Shoes, designer at the Play Date Cafe, host the challenge and the following magnificent photo is the inspiration for the color challenge this week:

The colours remind me of happy spring colours but also showcase a gentle touch of softness. For my card I used a stamp from a local stamp company, Great Impressions (South Africa), and layered the image on purple and blue tissue paper to add softness. Hope you like my card. I linked the card to the following challenges:

 

I used the following to create the card:

  • White, purple and blue cardstock
  • Purple and blue tissue paper
  • Great Impressions (South Africa) stamp F1645
  • Chriswick clear stamp “Script”
  • Marianne Design Creatables  LR0116
  • Guipere lace
  • Pearls
  • Seam binding
  • Paper roses
  • Lyra-Rembrandt Aquarelle water-colour pencils
  • Stickles “Lavender”
  • Skwiglues “Baby Blue”

And that is my creation for the weekend, I would love to hear what you think of my effort. Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Fabulous Amelia!
    Lovely the colours and the layout of the card.
    The lace trim on one side is a perfect compliment to the flower and ribbon trim.
    Love it!
