A cute little birthday card

I turned on my computer on Tuesday morning to check e-mail and read my google reader (seriously makes blog reading sooooo easy) knowing full well that I had a mission: a mission to create a brithday card for my friend Patrice, who I was seeing later that day. Instantly, I decided to challenge myself when I saw Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #34 - wonderful! Patrice's favorite color just happens to be purple, too. So I got to work. First, here's the inspiration image:

Now, what I did with it:

I love it! I envision myself using this color combination much more in the future. I also decided that I'm addicted to foam squares- note how everything is adhered that way? Hehe.

Supplies: Patterned paper: K & Co. (I absolutely LOVE this paper I bought at 50% off the full price of 9.99 at Michael's over Thanksgiving. It's wonnnnderful.), cardstock: Bazzill (light purple), Archiver's (dark purple), and unknown (green), Chipboard "P": Heidi Swapp, "Let's Party" Stamp: Studio G (also another Michael's buy), and Ribbon: Offray. ETA: Embossing powder: Stampabilities, Embossing ink: Ranger.

She absolutely loved it, by the way. Dinner at Applebee's was also absolutely delicious and fun. There's nothing like laughing until you cry the night before the last day of classes with six of the most interesting people you know.

Thanks for stopping by- leave a comment if you like the card! See you again soon. :)
