Rubies, Plums and Lavendar (no amethysts)

Stacey's Jewellery Colour Inspiration this week featured purples once again - yay!! But alas, I don't have Rich Razzleberry so substituted Perfect Plum as another reddish-purple, like in the last challenge I posted today. I don't pull out Lavendar Lace a lot either, in fact, I'm yet to purchase the large ink pad...

Stacey chose yet another gorgeous piece to inspire us.

I thought and thought about what I could do with this colour combo and eventually came up with a one sheet wonder type solution. I actually only stamped a 1/4 of a sheet of card, and still have the left over bit waiting to be made into another card. I wanted to get this one up and posted though. I'm quite happy with how the sheet turned out. For accents, I inked the butterfly with Lavendar Lace (Stampin' Write markers are so versatile!) and rock 'n rolled it in Perfect Plum - lovely effect, and added it with dimensionals on the edge of a piece of Styled Silver Hodgepodge so it's wings 'flutter'. The strip of Ruby Red has also been pierced along the edges to link in with the dots in the Priceless stamps.

Thanks for another great combo Stacey!

Stamps: Priceless, Big Bold Birthday
Card: Lavendar Lace, Perfect Plum, Ruby Red, Whisper White

This is lovely, Natasha! The strip of open-ended ribbon is genious...the piercing and rock-n-rolled edges are such perfect details! Thanks for playing in the JCI45!
