Lacy and Lovely Thank You

Hello there stampers! It's Saturday and time for another new color challenge over at Dynamic Duos. As it is the fourth week of the month we are focusing on monochromatic colors and this week, it's all about the purple hues. Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush make a pretty SWEET pair, don't they? I loved working with these colors, as "the purples" are not colors I regularly gravitate towards. 
I decided to use another stamp set I received at SU Convention called Lacy & Lovely for my card. This is such a fun set and is really versatile, as well. Also, the font used for the sentiments in this set is FABULOUS!! I got my inspiration for my card layout from this week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, designed by the always awesome Jen Mitchell . Any sketch that has a repeated element (in an odd number) ALWAYS gets my mojo workin' and this is certainly no exception. SO much fun! 
I guess it is pretty obvious that I had a CIRCLE-theme going on for this one. I found some (ret.) Concord Crush polka dot paper in my stash, added some different textures and a few pops of bling and there you have it. I am pretty happy about how this one came out and as an added bonus, it is easily able to be popped in the mail without a TON of additional postage. Love that! All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of the post.
Please stop by and check out this week's challenge over at Dynamic Duos! The lovely ladies I am on the Design Team with have created some awesome projects for inspiration, too. The challenge closes at Noon (PDT) on Thursday, August 30, 2012. We would love to have you share your "purple-tastic" creations with us!
