you're a dear

although i've mentioned (more than once...) that i am not a huge fan of purple for crafts, sometimes, i just have to use it anyway! for instance, one of my best friends' favorite color is purple. so of course when i want to make her something, i use purple. unfortunate as that is for me! :)

fortunately, though, off the wall craftiness has a new challenge out, and i was actually able to come up with an idea that i didn't second guess the entire time i made it! :) here are the inspiration colors:

and here is my purple spin on a card:

i combined two different stamp sets - one from paper smooches and the other one is, of course, from lawn fawn! i hope that's not a faux pas! they just fit so well together!
i layered two different colors of purple for the card and on top of that, i used some white ribbon. the sentiment is stamped onto polka dotted vellum (i love that!), which is why i used the white ribbon - to tie it together. then i paper pieced two deer stamps from lawn fawn, and made one of them a girl (complete with homemade bow! i made the bow by using two small heart punches and a little gemstone)!

the flower embellishment i sort of scraplifted. i found it buried deep in my scrap supplies but the base of it had like a tacky orange and dark i ripped that off and stuck it onto my folded over white ribbon! and ta-da! much better!

anyway, thanks for checking it out - i really appreciate it!
