And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Purple Shoes, Please

Hello again, friends!  SURPRISE!  This is my second post for today!  If you are looking for my Paper and Such sample, just scroll down to the next post.

It's also time for a new challenge over at the Can You Digi It? Blog, CYDI #16 - Purple Please.  I have to be honest with you...purple is NOT a favorite color and I very seldom use it; however, a lavender purple mixed with a bit of green is not so bad!

Creative Nugget:  The Good Shoes and Shoes and Shopping images on my sample are digital stamps by LilyPink Designs over at the CYDI? Store.  The background was made by randomly printing several shoe images onto Neenah Solar White card stock and coloring them with Copic Markers.  Texture was added to this panel with the Canvas Impression Plate and stitched to Marvelous Magenta card stock.  The DP  from the Purple and Green Paper Pack by Striped Elephant, can be found at the CYDI? Store, and was also stitched to the background.  The sentiment panel was colored with Copic Markers.  A corner rounder was used to frame the image and this was mounted on a Spellbinders Label Die.  A wired butterfly, some brads and rhinestones, and Baker's twine were added to finish the card and give it some bling.  This card will go to my niece who loves shoes and purple!

If you like purple, and even if you don't, check out the details, see other fabulous purple samples by the design team, and join the challenge over at the Can You Digi It? Blog.  We'd love to see your purple creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a terrific Tuesday!

The shoes look so realistic - fab coloring! Super stitching, bg paper, butterfly - all of it is wonderful. I would never have guessed that purple was not your favorite color. Hugz!!!
