Plum Crazy!

Hi, ladies! Hope you all had a great weekend. I'm in a good mood because we've actually had sunshine 3 days in a row...preceded by the wettest October in history (and, no, I'm not exaggerating).

Today's card is a two-fer, combining the Moxie Fab Plum Crazy challenge with FTL66. I LOVE Elegant Eggplant and don't use it often enough! This card is headed in the mail to a friend who loves purple. Hope she likes it (and I hope you do, too)!

Stamps: Everyday Sayings (Hero Arts)
Paper: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, white

Ink: Perfect Plum

Accessories: Nestabilities blossoms, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, PTI button, Kaisercraft pearls, SU ribbon

Great use of the purple. I know I don't use it very much either.
