Hello, thanks for stopping by. A former colleague and friend of mine is having a birthday. Her favorite color is purple, so  I made her a few cards to have on hand and a birthday card, all featuring PURPLE.

I have been wanting this Avery Elle stamp set for what seems like a long time, I finally ordered it and now it's getting kinked up. I used HA Neon Purple Ink, and HA Passion Flower Shadow Ink to stamp the front and the round sentiment window. I used Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin' Up, and some lavender from Recollections. The ribbon is from Ellen Hutson, and the pearls by MS.  The embossing folder is from Sizzix- Circles and Dots set. 
The card set has 4 cards, all the same design with 2 sentiments. The sentiment stamps and banner die are from Simon Says Stamp (Tilted Banners, Tilted Banner Sayings), the image stamp is from Stampin' Up,  the Embossing folder is from the Lifestyle Crafts Whimsy set. The ribbon from Ellen Hutson, and the window opening was cut with a Spellbinders Die, the circle with a Sizzix die.

Happy Birthday Ms. Michele!
