Purple birthday wishes...

A coworker of mine is celebrating her birthday on Saturday so I thought I would make a card to give with her gift.  She loves purple so I wanted to add as much of that as I could but did not want to have it overwhelm all the other colors.  I CASEd this card from Pinterest and of course, when I went back to find it, I couldn’t.  So my apologies to the maker of the original card and the fact that I cannot reference it on my blog.  The original card had seven panels and no twine or button.

I started off using a variety of inks and the “swooshey” (I really don’t know what to call it) stamp from the SU! for all things stamp set.  I wanted to create the background for these little panels rather than using DSP.  I broke out my retired SU! confetti stamp set and some memento black ink to stamp on the different colors.  I was really pleased at how well these turned out.  They do look like designer paper!

I dug out my two square punches and punched out my black squares and the handmade DSP.  After I glued all my panels down and had the twine and button on, the card seemed a little dull.  So out came the rhinestones to finish it off.  I am hoping that she likes the card and enjoys the gift and cake tomorrow!
