Purple Rose

Happy Friday, everyone!

Congratulations to Bev Barton, our new reigning Queen for the Day this week, on Splitcoaststampers! I chose Bev's beautiful Gratitude card to case.

Things I changed:
1. colors
2. stamped my background instead of embossing it
3. stamps

Enjoy your day, sweet Bev, and thank you for all the inspiration in your wonderful gallery!

This is also for Dawn's Free for All challenge on Splitcoaststampers to give our card the Royal Treatment by using reds/golds/purples in our design. Obviously, I went with purple.  I used all Rubbernecker images to create my own designer paper background, as well as the sentiment    [Create a Garden Set 1 (#512), Create a Garden Set 2 (#513),Garden Phrase Set (#508) ].   The beautiful purple rose is by Prima and was given to me by my friend Joanne (thanks JoJo!)

Nice job, making your own patterned paper. I like the whole effect of your design.
