Love in violet

Hello everyone! I haven't played with this set from The Angel Company (Fanciful Vintage) in a while and thought I do something up for either a wedding, anniversary or Valentines Day card. Which one should it be?



The frame is stamped in Versamagic spring pansy and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Which you really can't see or tell in th photo. The Love sentiment is not embossed.

To create the back ground, I randomly stamped the flower stamp in the same ink. Then layered them all with cardstock that is in one the caboodles paper pack. I can't remember which one, since I took them all out of the packs.

The satin ribbon is died using a Copic marker then tied with the bow easy.

It's funny, I was reading a thread over on SCS about what color people are allergic to. So many said purple. I like working with purple, however it is hard to photograph.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
