Well my heart knows me better than I know myself, so I'm gonna let it do all the talking...

Look!! Another challenge...and this time...one from THIS WEEK! I know, I know. Pick yourself up off the floor. No, I'm not sick. *wink*

My Bellas have been calling my name (poor things, they're so underloved...), so I picked out Mwahbella and went to work!

Emily's color challenge this week made me gag a little when I read it, but it really is a fun springy combination (once you hide the purple)! You know I hate working with purple, right? Yep, I do. It's one of my favorite colors in life, but I cannot craft with it to save my life.

Well, I have to run, but I'll have more stuff to post tonight, so stay tuned!! Have a happy Thursday!



Stamps: Mwahbella, Uplifting Phrases (Verve Visual), Print Pattern
Paper: Orchid Opulence, Papertrey White, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor Paper, DP by My Mind's Eye
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Waterbrush & reinkers, Bling from Me and My Big Ideas, White Taffeta Ribbon, Making Memories Slot Punch, Corner Rounder, Jumbo Sponge Dauber

Funny, I've recently been reading a lot of crafter saying that they HATE to work with purple. Why is that?
Cute card, you did good.

I don't think that I even HAVE purple paper and ink. Bleech, I'm a purple loather myself.

However, your card is SUPER cute - good job working with that difficult color combo.

I have to say that mwahbella with her cute little heiny is adorable. Too bad my butt isn't that cute in jeans!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your card! esp the distressing/sponging around her. I think I've neglected my bellas recently too - gotta ink 'em up again! I love purple too but have a hard time with the orchid (I kinda winced with the color combo too & haven't been brave enough to try it) I would NOT be sad or hold onto that color if/when SU! retires it. it's a little outdated to me
