Friends make life blossom

When I saw this beauty from Graphics Fairy, I said Oh my, I must use her. I remembered there was a challenge for purplish stuff at at Reasonable Ribbon . I looked it up and it was Challenge #22 Violets, Lilacs and Plums, Oh My. She fit the bill  perfectly with her soulful gaze and pretty purple printed top.
This was a simple card with an inked kissed stripe background, rose ribbon embroidered ribbon and sequins. There is layering of  a different patterned purple paper with script and additional touches of lilac and plum organza ribbon. A touch of german scrap and the  stamped sentiment came next. She printed out so well, that I she didnt need any rhinestones or  glitter.
You bloggers are the friends that make my life blossom.
Artfully yours,
gerri

  2. Wow, this is stunning! That ribbon with roses and hearts is truly to die for! It is complimented by your other gorgeous trims. Quite frankly I would have to hoard a piece of ribbon like this, lol, I don't know if I could use it. You have used yours so beautifully.

  9. I think I have that same script purple paper and hadn't figured out what to do with it in forever. This is perfect eye-candy! And I love, love, love that organza ribbon with the embroidery & flowers ... gorgeous! I always end up holding onto beautiful emellies/ribbons for that "perfect" project and it never gets used. I'm going to have to come out of my "shell", and take a page from your book. TFS!
