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.

Purple Bday 06212
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!

A big congrats to Barb, the newest Featured Stamper (FS386) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery and I chose THIS card to case. I kept the oval and similar colors but I used a vertical layout and made a melted crayon background (a cousin of encaustic wax) for the WT485 challenge, instead of using designer paper. 

This was the first time I’ve tried the melted crayon background and I loved playing around with it. I made quite a few…it was hard to stop! Since I really like how this background turned out, I kept everything else simple…a greeting on a white frame and some die cuts. I don’t think I’ve had this much fun with crayons in a long time! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Congrats again, Barb!
