Pink & Purple

Hi everyone, I made this card up from some leftovers on my desk and thought the flower looked more summery paired with purple rather than black. 

I'm linking up to a few challenges:
At Simon Says Stamp Monday the theme is summer. 

Simon Monday Challenge Blog

At CASology the theme is pop. I'm going with a pop of colour.

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's an anything goes theme.


At Allsorts the theme is how does your garden grow.

  2. Gorgeous summer bloom. I love your color combo! Thank you so much for playing along with us over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog this week :)

  3. So pretty, Cathy ... such yummy rich colours with that gorgeous gold! Anita :)

  4. This is one of my all time favourite dies - love the colour choice - you're right about the purple! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

  5. Cathy, I LOVE your color combo (have friends in the Red Hat Ladies) and even before I heard of the Red Hats, I loved the colors paired together. The gold shimmer around the edges of the pink petals looks really cool popped over the purple block, and the entire floral image just shimmers & glows. Perfectly done with this inlay technique too! TFS & Hugs

  6. Such a gorgeous flower, and you made a good call with that purple background.

You have been busy making soon outstanding cards and I love them all.
