SP Blog Hop for August 2011



Hi there! I am submitting the card below for the blog hop happening right now on SP & Company's blog and the theme is PURPLE. Not a color I use a ton, so this was really fun for me to do something out of the ordinary :) I just got this new Hero Arts stamp yesterday at Archiver's during their fantastic, one-day-only sale and I knew when I bought it I was going to use it for this project.




I really wish the camera could pick up the Glimmer Mist I used all over the flower. It adds a really simple but elegant shimmer to the whole flower just making it pop! And of course, I got to use my purple Copics. And the sentiment at the bottom is from a Technique Tuesday set by Ali Edwards. I just love her handwriting and thought it went so well with this simple but elegant card.


I hope you love it :) Thanks for stopping by!! Remember you can view this larger by clicking on each image!
