hello purple

here's another card i made for a certain, special someone who is having a birthday next week! :) i made with the play date cafe color story in mind...and you may want to sit down for's purple!

and you may or may not know, but i really don't like crafting with purple! i can't explain it! i can look at things that people create with purple and think it's pretty, but i, always get a mind block when i use purple! sigh. :)

that being said! this person's favorite color is it had to be done. :) 
and here's my card! 

super simple! i used some paper smooches stamps from the 'sugar rush' stamp set! i actually combined the top of the ice cream cone and the bottom of the cupcake wrapper for the cupcake. i don't know! i was paper piecing anyway, so why not? :)

the cupcake is popped up for dimension, and then i added some white pearls to the top left of the card to balance it out and add a little subtle pizzaz! :)

i hope it tickled your fancy! do you have a certain color or technique that you just can't stand using when you craft? i'm so curious to know if other people feel this way too! :)


  1. What a beautiful card--perfect for anyone celebrating a birthday! I love that candle!!!

    ps...I absolutely hate working with purple as well!!! And some blues!! LOL!

  2. Lovely! Purple is a difficult color to craft with - I agree with you, I love to see other people use it but struggle myself. Love what you did, though! Thanks for joining in this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge!
