{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - out of the box }

How about another purple card!! Purple is not my favorite color and I don't even know how I started using it, but I love it.  I used a sketch from 2S4Y #51.
I used my favorite background stamp, Cover-a-Card Wood Grain (CC34), sprayed it with Grape Escape Shimmerz Vibes and made this beautiful background. I added the bicycle from my second favorite stamp set, Riding Pretty (CL255). I know I didn't get too creative with my "out of the box" challenge, but I wanted my own "patterned paper".

I added some pretty hand dyed crinkled ribbon and some flowers in the basket. I cut them out and used pop dots for dimension. I added a strip of Basic Grey Kioshi paper that I punched with a border punch. I machine stitched the paper to the card base.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designers' blogs for inspiration! Dina, Jeanne,  JulieDeborah,and Rosemary.
