Purple Birthday

Purple Bday cu 06213
 A big congrats to Francie, the newest Featured Stamper! My goodness, what a COLORFUL gallery she has! It was so hard to pick, but the colors on THIS card really spoke to me. I kept the fabulous purple colors & flowers, but I used different images, a little bit different layout and made mine a birthday card.

I had a small melted crayon background with these wonderful pinky/purple colors and it reminded me of Francie’s beautiful purple hydrangea card, so I die cut a frame to go around it & attached it behind the opening. For the flowers, I sponged the colors from the Kpad, die cut them then decided they needed a white border so I trimmed them a little closer & die cut another solid white version & attached the trimmed version on top. I used a white Prismacolor pencil to add just a touch of white in areas on the flowers.

A die cut Happy was attached on top of the melted crayon bg, the flowers & leaves attached & some sequins for a little sparkle. 
Congrats again, Francie! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Wow, Julie your crayon background turned out stunning. At first glance I thought it might have been the shaving cream background. Like you, I love the colours. This card really pops.

  2. Oh, Julie, this is gorgeous, and I LOVE the shades of purple. But the background is what really is absolutely exquisite and gives this card such pop! Stunning and such a wonderful tribute to our FS Francie this week…good choice! Hugs!

  3. I assumed it was the shaving cream technique, but will look up melted crayons! I love it – what an awesome background. Love the monochromatic look – stunning card!
