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.
Cheery Lynn Designs Dies used:
My ‘signature bow’ was made created with Grape and Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon using my Bow-it-All V3.0.
