A Happy Heart

I have Halloween paper scraps everywhere today- and a lot of the purple patterned paper meant that I could play along with the Color Dare this week.

I put together some papers from retired paper packets using Eggplant and Thistle patterned paper, matted on Black cardstock. The White Daisy circle was stamped with the sentiment in Pansy ink and a black wreath. I also added a small strip of the Thistle Shimmer Trim.

I thought the pattern was a diamond print but on closer inspection it seems to be spiders! Oh well, I still think the finished card is cute and very purple.

More scrapbooking today for me as the weather is rather gloomy- school holidays start tomorrow so I will not have a lot of time in the next two weeks to play in my scrap area. That means that today is full of paper, Cricut cuts and lots of bling! I may even make a few more purple cards.


  1. Great card, I like your panels of patterned paper mounted on black.

  2. Beautiful card. I love the patterned papers and your circle layer is so pretty! Thanks for joining us at Color My Heart!

  3. I like how you added "just a touch" of purple shimmer trim to make the card really come together nicely.

  4. Great card! Love the layout and that bit of shimmer trim is a nice touch. Thank you for inspiring us at Color My Heart Challenge Blog.

  5. Love that background paper...great for Halloween cards but until you look closely you don't notice the spiders like you say. Greaet layout and good blend of the purples. Thanks for joining us at Color Dare, and please look at this week's challenge.

  6. Fabulously fun card! I love the spidery background paper. Thanks for sharing this wonderful card with us at the Color Dare blog--please join us again soon.
