Purple Passion



Good morning to you all, before I tell you about our new theme at Allsorts my apologies for my lack of visits for a few days and over the weekend but we are away, all rather last minute and I find commenting on my tablet all but impossible as my dodgy fingers just can't navigate the keyboard. 

So this post is scheduled and will hopefully pop up Saturday morning to tell you all about our new theme which Tracy has chosen, it's 'Purple Passion', no prizes for guessing it's her favourite colour.

I have used the lovely Violet stamp from Stampendous which I stamped with versafine black and heat embossed with detail clear before colouring in with Spectrum pencils. The matting and layering has been done with TL Shades cardstock using TL Pin Dot frames, Pearl Dot frames and Pearl Border dies. A stamped sentiment and some ribbons which I left longer than usual so they draped down the sides of my card.

Happy weekend all.

  10. I always love violets, in my zone they grown under the ulive trees in this time of the year. Your card is very elegant with blu and white and your bow it's a wow factor! Sorry for your poor fingers!! I wish you feel well quickly!
    Ooops!!! ... Ho scritto in inglese! :D Dicevo che amo molto le violette, nella mia zona crescono spontanee sotto gli ulivi proprio in questo periodo! La tua card è molto elegante in bianco e blu e il fiocco è uno spettacolo! Spero che le tue povere dita guariscano presto!
    Abbracci!
