In any event, Thursday brings us to another CCEE Stampers challenge. Cindy Haffner is our November challenge hostess and she has challenged to use a store bought flower in our design. I've got a lot of store bought flowers that I never use, so this was a great challenge to make me start using them. I love these sweet little purple rosettes. I know a lot of people don't care for purple, but it is one of my favorite colors and I haven't used it as the main color in any of my designs in ages.
As you can see, this was a quick, clean, and easy card to make. I used my five-petal flower punch on the checked designer paper and centered the store bought purple rosettes onto the dp. I love this rich, deep purple embossed dotted swiss paper (that was a mouthful!), which I border punched with this zig zag design. "Congratulations" is from Stampin' Up's Well Scripted stamp set.
If you have some time, why not stop by our CCEE Stampers blog, see the terrific designs Joanne, Frances, Cindy, Shirley, and Tosha made and consider playing along with us!
