Purple is my favorite color

Well I am reviving from my weekend 50th High School Reunion.  We had a terrific time both Friday night and Saturday night.  It was so nice to see old friends.  And I mean old in the nicest way.

So I owe you the other two cards that I made on Friday.  This one is using my favorite color and my favorite insect - the butterfly.  I can never get enough purple in my life.  I just saw on QVC that they had purple cookware. Boy was I tempted but I didn't give in.

Let me get back to the card.  The base card stock is Grape Fusion (CS-0012).I used Pretty Pansy card stock (CS-0029) to cut out and emboss the Tagged Pocket Die (DI-0001).  I then die cut a strip of Whip Cream (CS-0040) and stamped the saying from the stamp set  Gifted Wings ( SS-0040) and cut the card stock to fit in the pocket.  Using the same stamp set, I stamped the jar, colored it, then layered Journey Glaze over the glass part of the image. To complete the look, I stamped the butterfly and placed him over the butterfly in the image.

To complete the card, I added three pearls and the top and made a white bow for the bottom to add balance. 

'Til next time...
