Plum Crazy Plaid

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I don't usually use purple much in my paper crafting - it isn't that I dislike the color, I guess I tend towards other colors first - but the current Moxie Fab World Challenge is helping me to be plum crazy!

And what could be better than a perfect plum plaid!! ;)

I started with half a sheet of Perfect Plum cardstock. I stamped my plaid (Off Beat Backgrounds) in Perfect Plum, Night of Navy, and Peony VersaColor ink. *swoon*

The card base is Night of Navy, and I adhered my plum plaid diagonally and trimmed off the rest. The label is from Very Vintage Labels 4 and the circle tag and sentiment is from Seasons of Love - Tags. I adhered the label on a bit of an angle, just for kicks. I added a silver button, some white gel pen dots, and some distress ink to finish it off.

This deep purple color is really speaking to me right now - I am thankful to Cath for the inspiration and challenge! Go here to check out the challenge, be inspired, and submit your entry!

Have a great night everyone! I am so glad to see you today!

  7. A beautiful plum card Anya! Love the angular plaid panel and the wonderful mix of colors you used!!

  8. I think there should be 'extra credit' points for stamping a pattern! Great card Anya.

  9. Oooo--I love the plaid, and the colours are not traditionally Christmas, but they're so warm that it suits the card perfectly! Great job!!
