Vintage Violet

Woke up to SNOW today, but that didn't get in the way of going stamping today! Whoo hoo I love to stamp! Met CM today and we went to AJ's house. It was my first time meeting AJ and yet it didn't feel that way. We had a good time sorting through our new Stampin Up goodies, which AJ had picked up for us. Thank you AJ!
CM was kind enough to let us use her good SU scissors for cutting. Well, actually, CM got a blister from all the cutting she did while we mounted our new stamps! Sorry CM!!
Finally we got a little stamping in. I made this card with mostly SU products. The card stock is white from my non-SU stash, Almost Amethyst and Vintage Violet. Used the set Heartfelt Thanks. Stamped with classic inks Vintage Violet and True Thyme for the stamped flower and Craft ink Whisper White for the front outline flower stamp. The background was stamped using versamark. The background oval was run through the cuttlebug with the swirl template. The ribbon is from my blog candy stash from http://www.stampinsars.blogspot.com/ and the new(ish) vintage violet ribbon. This card was inspired by the elegant card by Cindy. I thought it would be more elegant in the purples, but wasn't as inspiring as I thought it could have been. May need to test out a few more to get an improved elegant card.

Beautiful and elegant design! I think it looks fabulous in purple. :-) It was fun stamping with you yesterday, as usual, and I'm glad you & AJ got to meet.

So pretty! I love that stamp; do I have it?? You never can have enough floral stamps, right? Very very nice KJ!
