Pretty in Purple

 This is my first time playing along with two new blogs I've recently learned of.  One is Fab Friday.  They have given us a sketch challenge, that I chose to flip.  This is the first challenge offered by this blog, and I am quite excited to play along with them and the promise of inspiration to come.

As you can see, I did change the direction of the banner.

I am also trying Sunday Stamps on for size.  This week, they gave us the challenge of using Sahara Sand, Wisteria Wonder, and Lucky Limeade.
Some very cool colors!  

These cards use:  Sahara Sand, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, and Whisper White
Stamp sets: Perfectly Preserved, Happiest Birthday Wishes, Betsy's Blossoms
Other: 3/4" circle punch, crystal effects, paper piercer, Cannery framelit set, build a blossom punch, boho blossom punch, ribbon edge punch, glue dots
Head over to the Fab Friday  and Sunday Stamps blogs and check them out!
 Pssstt.... those aren't buttons.... I stacked a bunch of 3/4" circles, glued them together, and then pierced some holes into the stack and layered the top with crystal effects.

Thanks for looking!

I love how you've combined the challenges - and both cards are fantastic. The "home made" buttons are perfect. Thanks for playing along with Sunday Stamps - hope to see you again.
