Wow…is Thanksgiving really tomorrow? How did that all happen so fast? In my mind, it’s still summer! Today is the day for my weekly column, Purple Passion, on MFP Speedy TV.
For my card this week, I used purple in the background for my matting. Sometimes, that’s a great way to use a color that’s normally out of your comfort zone…use it as a base or mat for your card.
I used a GORGEOUS stamp from Mark’s Finest Papers called Autumn Friendships. I think this is probably my favorite stamp from them. The leaf is really pretty by itself, but then when you look closer there’s a whole Fall scene inside it! Beautiful! I used lots of Quick Quotes paper scraps and some Bic Mark-It’s to color in my leaf. Not my favorite coloring job ever, but it’ll do! I might go back and try it again with some Distress Inks soon!
I hope you’ll stop by my blog this week and say hi! You can find me at Scrap This Save That. Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!
