A few weeks back, Stamping Bella had a color challenge for their first weekly challenge. The combo was red, purple and white. At first glance (even second or third) this would not be a color combo I would have chosen. I never did do the challenge with a bella but the combo must have lingered in my mind because the other day, I had stamped these poppy red butterflies and that little stamping voice told me to try it with purple.
Here is the card in all its red and purple glory. The butterflies (from Papertrey) are stamped in PTI poppy ink. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and stamped with concord grape Distress Ink. I have to say I really like that shade of purple. I have a lot of purple ink pads but that is the truest purple and my go-to ink when I need that shade.
The paper is from the polka dot pack at Papertrey. Pretty simple layout - I can't remember if it is a Fall-to-Layout from the CAS blog but wherever I saw it, I really liked the simplicity and thought these tag stamps from PTI would be perfect for it.
Meg and I went shopping for a headpiece for her First Communionoutfit today. Who knew it would be so hard? Many stores had the dresses but not the headpiece - thank goodness for Nordstrom's, her outfit is now complete. That was the big excitement for my day - hope your day is going well!
