PPA247



This pretty color combination for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge is a tough one for me.  I never use purples except Blackberry Bliss. For some reason, this is burgundy-ish in my brain, so I don't think of it as a purple.  

I searched through my scraps and found a small piece of Perfect Plum and then I found the marker.  I had an Elegant Eggplant stamp pad and everything in Blackberry Bliss.  I decided to stamp on the Irresistibly yours paper which is no longer available.  

I inked up two new stamp sets, one is a hostess set from Occasions called Because You Care, and the other Petal Potpourri.  I love the variations of sentiments in the frame of Because You Care!  The Occasions catalog only lasts through the end of May so don't wait if there's something you want from it!

Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment.  I love reading them!

So cute! I hope we get some more specialty DSP like the IY paper - it's so fun to stamp on top of it to make some really cool layers. Thanks for playing with PPA this week!

I'm in awe of how you made the white polka dots dance around with the rich purple colors. Perfection my friend. Thanks for joining us at Pals Paper Arts.
