Turned Purple

Paper: Purple Velvet & Metallic Silver On Turquoise Damask Paper from Paperchase, Lilac Card, Cream Card.
Accessories: 1.5cm Silver Metallic Grosgrain Ribbon, Blue Brads
Tools: Swiss Dots Embossing Folder(Provo Craft)

It's purple this time. Am not too sure if I should continue making cards with no particular sentiment to it or does cards with words always sell better? Hmm.

Whenever I use purple papers, my friend, Wean will come to mind. She loves all things purple and she collects purple stationeries. She sometimes even hunt for papers of a certain purple hue. She would have loved it if she came for my wedding because purple was the theme colour. Ah memories...

Thoughts and memories stream in when I am making cards. They can either be distractions or inspirations but nevertheless these thoughts accompany me through the whole card making process.

I discovered that the current card challenge from Card Pattern is similar to this one design I just made, so I am submitting this as an entry ;)


  1. Pretty card. I love the purple hues...
    No sentiment allows the card to be used for any ocassion :)

  2. Hi Annie, thanks for visiting. Yeah, I know it's good any occasion. Perhaps I was thinking of those who couldn't decide why they want a card. I think sometimes cards with sentiments remind a person an occasion is coming up ;)

  3. Great take on the sketch. Thanks for playing with us at Card Patterns this week.
