Cards in Envy Challenge: “Just Purple”

Happy Monday!  That means it’s time for a new Cards in Envy Challenge and this week we are celebrating “Just Purple.”

I’d also like to wish my oldest, Dan, a very Happy Birthday today!!

Please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 card without any large lumps or bumps. The challenge will run through Sunday, March 27th and our design team will be choosing their favorite cards to feature on the The Cards in Envy blog.

For my card I used the My Favorite Things “Beautiful Blooms” card kit from January. I began with FW Pearlescent Fluid Acrylic Paint for my background.  It’s got a gorgeous shimmer.  I then used the stamp, dies and ink from the kit and finished off with an Altenew sentiment from Oriental Orchid.  The card base is cut out with a WPlus9 Die.


I’m looking forward to seeing what you enter for your “Just Purple” cards this week!

  2. LOvely card, Kathy! The free-form background perfectly complements the crisp lines of your die cuts and stamping. So beautiful!


  3. Dear Kathy, I have come here from the Cards in Envy blog to tell you that I think your card is absolutely stunning! Love everything about it – and I am usually not even a flowery card kind of girl ;o) Awesome card ;o)


    • Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. That is thoughtful. I do love this card kit from My Favorite Things. It was their first and I think the best so far. Hope you’ll consider joining my blog so you can see all my creations!
