I have a confession to make... I. HATE. purple! When I read Gina's challenge that we had to use 2 of her new colors I almost groaned outload! You see my relationship with purple is bittersweet. It was my Gran's color. I made cards for her every year & they were all purple. After she died, I haven't used purple very much. In fact, when I saw the purple that Gina released I didn't order it... after all I'm not going to need it. (just keepin' it real! *wink* ) I remembered that a card kit came with the Spring Florals set that I ordered... big sigh of relief that it had the Vibrant Violet & the Lovely Lavender in it. But, there was only enough for 3 cards... so I have been super careful with the cardstock, trying to make sure I cut correctly, etc. I wanted to put a punch on this card & realized that I only have one piece of Vibrant Violet left. So, I punched from the Vibrant Violet base panel, you can't even see that there is a punch hole in it & I have one panel left to use on another card.
You might want to make sure that you don't have anything in your mouth as you read this next part... *sigh* These two purples are very pretty... the Lovely Lavender is the prettiest lavender I have seen... I WILL be placing an order this weekend while Gina is having her sale & I will be adding the two purples. (you can quit laughing now! :) )
I paired this up with the Stamp Simply Challenge- With Sympathy. I will put this in my card stash to have for the next time I need a sympathy card.
