Shopping our Stash #50

The challenge over at Shopping Our Stash #50 is to create a Mother's Day card, or anything "girly." Since I finished all my Mother's day cards already, I went with a girly thank-you card using the Heartfelt Creations Lilac image. This is another image I stamped at a stamp meet over a year ago and I'm just now getting around to using it. I colored this with Copics, adding some pearl dots with a Viva pearl pen. I matted with royal purple cardstock, adding some lavender ribbon and tiny tags stamped with an Inkadinkado stamper. The background was embossed with a Petals A'Plenty ef from SU!
I'm so glad I started playing along with SOS challenges, because now I'm actually USING these supplies I've had lying around for much too long!
Here's a card I made for the QFTD111 challenge over on SCS. This week our new queen is Betty/gbedwright, and I cased this pretty thank-you card from her gallery. You can find all the specifics for making this card on my SCS gallery link here.

That's going to do it for purple flowers for this Friday :) Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Carol, both of these cards are exquisite. Your coloring is outstanding and I love the embossing on both and those two little tags on your first card add a touch of sweetness. Love your touch of green on the second. Just fabulous job on both. Enjoy your weekend.

WOW, Carol! Both of these are amazingly beautiful. Love the coloring, embossing, ribbon, and everything else.
Glad you're playing along with the SOS challenge too! It's pretty nice finding forgotten things in our stash isn't it!

I love these purple cards! The first image is gorgeous. I wonder how it would look colored up as a Christmas tree? And the pansies are delightful.

You just have a great knack for flowers! They always look so beautiful on your cards but it has to do with all the pretty embossing and embellishments! I think the purple is stunning!
