Purple and Blue Hello

Here's the card that I recently made for the Society of Stampaholics  September 2015 challenge. If you are not familiar with it, check it out and come join us! This monthly challenge is called CCC for Card Chain Challenge and this card was made specifically for Lisa at The Purple Place. She also loves purple.  :-) The card is pretty clean and simple with plenty of white space. Can you see the dry embossed background? It is much prettier in real life. The only stamping is the flower. I used the in-laid technique for the hello die with some blue bits and added enamel dots for balance. The card may meet the suggested friendship guideline, but the dots were supposed to be for the up-coming October challenge. Oops.

I used PTI white for the card base. The Bashful Blue, Purple Plum and Basic Black card stock, an embossing folder called Fancy Fan, and the Candy Dots are all from Stampin' Up!  The hello die is from Mama Elephant. The SU flower is from a set called Mixed Bunch and is cut out with the matching punch.

I am so into dies and punches and embossing folders that I rarely seem to use stamps anymore. Need to remedy that. Anyone else not using stamps much?

Thanks much for stopping by. Be back soon with fall or Halloween cards.
