Shades of Purple ...

The Color Throwdown Challenge for today ask that you use the colors Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive. Being a PURPLE lover, I couldn't wait to play this challenge along with the SCS Sketch Challenge.
My base card is of Old Olive and is A-6 in size. The background panel was created by using the Lavendar Lace panel (matted with Elegant Eggplant) and overstamped using the Crafty Secrets Wildflower stamp set in Old Olive ink. My designer paper panel is from the Basic Grey Euphoria pack. My grosgrain ribbon is from Michael's and my main image is from the Stampin' Up Spring Song set which was colored using SU watercolor pencils/blender pen. I used the Nestabilities Labels Four diecuts. The sentiment is by AMuse and Dew Drops were use for embellishment.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a beautiful, sunny day like we are here in NE Ohio.
