Use Your Stuff #225 - Color Challenge

Hello again! I am back with my second post for the day. If you are looking for my Memory Nest reveal, please scroll down or go here.

Last week the design team at Use Your Stuff had the week off, but today we are back with a new challenge for you. This week Heather has a beautiful color challenge for us. Use these colors on your project:

Once again I was reminded that I don't have a lot of purple in my stash! I definitely need to look into buying some purple papers/embellishments.

I found this sketch on Pinterest, from Anabelle O'Malley and knew it would be perfect for what I wanted to do. Here is a look at the sketch:

The circles reminded of my favorite handmade flowers - lollipop flowers. Since I don't have a lot, well, lets be real, since I don't have any purple embellishments, I decided to make my own lollipop flowers for my card. I added in a cluster of pearls for the centers. I love the way this card turned out!

My oldest sister has been in the hospital and I thought I would send this card to her to let her know that I am thinking about her, and hopefully brighten her day.

Check out the Use Your Stuff blog to see the beautiful projects from the rest of the team.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope that you have a wonderful day!
