Friday Fun #27 Purple Passion and EIC #31

Kimmie is living the life of a princess! She is also recognizing our Savior with this week's challenge - use the color of royalty as the main color for your card. What's the color of royalty? Rich purple! I strayed just a little, but I think my card still meets the challenge. What do you think?

This project is also for the Etsy Inspired Challenge #31. I used the "You Complete Me" sweetheart jar from Misspottery's shop (Make Mine Mud) as my inspiration. She had hand laid hearts all around the jar, and the first thing I thought of is God completes me, and guards my heart. The swirls on the embossed cardstock carry the feel of the heart images.

I got to go shopping a little while ago, and picked up two Fiskar's border punches. I have been drooling over them for some time, and finally caught a sale! The paper has been in my hoarding stash for several years - it's Ki Memories from 2004! Brads are MM, flowers are Prima, and dark purple cardstock is Bazzill. I used purple StazOn for the Unity image (Something Within kit) and SU! clear embossing powder.

My dear friend, Lee, sent me this card:To protect the card in the mail, she sent a card face sized piece of embossed cardstock. It's pale green and has a little shimmer in it. I repurposed it rather than throw it away. What a clever idea to include something that could be put to use! Thanks, Lee!!

I'm off on a new project now. Don't forget - the Unity Addicts challenge and the Hip Hop Challenges should be posted sometime tomorrow on the SCS Unity forum. Join us!

Peace be the journey - cool runnings.

Ta for now, ~ky
