Purple Posy

Hello! Dropping in very quickly today to show you a card I made yesterday for a friend's birthday tomorrow. Inspiration did not come easily for this card. And because I am a sucker for punishment, I decided to take an obvious Halloween colour combo for my project.

Lawnscaping Challenge #140 is suggesting Black, Purple and one other colour. I added Green to the mix and made this card:

I've used LF Penelope's Blossoms and coordinating dies for the floral arrangement. I cut out the greeting with LF Happy Birthday Border die and purple glitter foam. The little strip of patterned paper above the black glitter panel is from Polka In The Dark. Inks I've used LF Freshly Cut Grass, LF Noble Fir, LF Sugarplum, LF Fresh Lavender, VersaFine Imperial Purple and VersaColor Heliotrope. And to finish a few itty bitty green bling.

Lawnscaping #140: Black, Purple + One Other (Green)
Seize The Birthday: Birthday + Leaves
Craft Rocket #26: Happy Birthday

Must dash. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I'll be back tomorrow with a festive card. Until then... have a beautiful Monday.
