3 Clover's Thursday Challenge #6-Purple and Glitter

Purple and Glitter oh my! This week over on 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge we are celebrating Kerry's birthday!

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthdayyyyy dear Kerry
Happy Birthday to you!!!!!

You are darn lucky you can't hear me singing...I am bad!

Kerry seems to have a "thing" for purple and glitter...so we are using her fave's this week.

Come join in and use your purple and glitter and make a fun creation!

I had a heck of a time photographing purple...it just wouldn't come out right..This card is really Elegant Eggplant, Mellow Moss and Brushed Silver...very pretty IRL.The center oval is a layer of silver, mellow moss and eggplant...a little hard to tell from this picture. The flower is embossed with silver SU! powder. The bottom border is punched using my new EK Success punch...they are pretty cool and they punch through SU cardstock so easily!

I love this new little circle sentiment...I just bought it at the Portland stamp convention. It is made by Make An Impression (phone # 800-362-7735)

I'm just jealous that you have the simple scallop punch from MS!! I've been trying for over a month to find it and M's around here don't seem to have it!

What? You bought another stamp? I love the colors on this card -- and, here's a tip for singing Happy Birthday -- I video taped me singing a Happy Birthday to my cousin -- it was a riot -- cause I can't sing either......
