When I saw Kristina Werner’s latest color inspiration challenge (#34), I immediately thought of the beautiful (retired) Enchanté Designer Series Paper. The sheet I used in the background has stripes in Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Sage Shadow, and Certainly Celery. I cut a Top Note out of Bordering Blue card stock, which was the only color still missing for the challenge.

The sentiment, from the retiring Wonderful Words stamp set, was stamped in Perfect Plum on a Very Vanilla Top Note. I tore off the top and bottom, and mounted it on the blue Top Note after stamping the Sprinkles hearts with Perfect Plum ink. Rhinestone brads and a pair of ribbons tied together finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
