Hi friends. This week we have a great new Pretty in Purple themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog. I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.
I’m sharing another birthday card today that was inspired by my favorite color – purple! It started with a gorgeous piece of purple Indian Batik Cotton Rag paper that I ‘had to have’ and then I mixed in some of my favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
Perhaps a little bit of a dark color combination for this time of year, but I started with the purple batik paper which has a little gold in it and bada-bing, bada-boom, this is where I ended up. Sometimes you just have to go with it.

Hi there everyone. Today I’m sharing a feminine floral birthday card today featuring some ‘Pink-o-licous’ ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and some fabulous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
When I auditioned the beautiful Sakura Flower die from Cheery Lynn Designs on a plain white background, it was too ‘blah’. A patterned background was too busy. What to do….. Well, I went with a white on white background for a subtle textured background. It gives some interest without competing with the flower. I just love this look. I simply cut a Lattice piece in white cardstock and adhered it to a white piece of cardstock. Then I added the floral die cut on that.

I added some pretty white mulberry paper as my last layer before the card base to soften the look of the card.
