When I was a youngster I talked my mom into painting my room the dark purple, after a couple of years we changed it to the light purple, how ironic for me.
As a challenge to myself, I tried to take ribbon and twist it into a rosette. The new glue gun I had bought stopped working almost immediately after I opened it, so I went a different route. I did try to "punch" the ribbon with a scalloped edge circle that did not cut but gave it a distressed edge after I hand cut it. My new favorite thing is to stamp images on white flowers to fit with the card. I usually use a small heart or something swirly. I decided to use a small circle, not sure if I really like the results, but hey it is done. The journey is really where it is at, right?
I used Heidi Grace Designs for the sentiment; Sabrina Making Memories Paper Edges; and Making Memories Blossoms/Paper Leaves. The rest is leftover stash items.
