I love purple and I was so excited when I knew that "purple" was the colour for this week's Summer of Colour!!!
I've used this amazing Solitaire Leather & Rivets Design from Chris at CS Designs. These Solitaire designs are some of my most favourite designs at the moment and I am finding so many different ways to use them! You will notice that I have used the single flower image from the Summer Garden Collection also from CS Designs! And to top it all off the "colour" sentiment is from Chris' sentiment range of digis.
I've paper pieced this image using textured cardstock and I wanted to keep with the "theme" of the image "Leather and Rivets" so I have used eyelets as rivets and have added real stitching as well. I have cut around the single flower image and moutned on the card along with the other embellisments including the skeleton leaves, little butterfly punchies, sizzix tags and fibres.
I hope you like my card and make sure you visit the Summer of Colour Blog and check out all the other amazing purple creations on show!
Make it Monday have an Anything Goes Challenge this week so my purple creation has been entered there! The 2 Sisters Challenge Blog have an anything goes challenge also! I've also entered my purple card at the Stamp Something Blog for their "embellishment" challenge.
