I used a dark purple and a cream-colored one with purple / lavender touches to make the July birthday cards for ladies at church.
I very often use layouts from http://cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com/ as a starting point and decided on #235 for this:
The flower (GinaK Designs "A Year of Flowers) was heat embossed in black. The insides were first lightly colored in pink (Spectrum Noir) and then rubbed with Dusty Concord (Tim Holtz). The edges of the purple lace DP was also edged in Dusty Concord. A couple of liquid pearls added to the flower center.
Sentiment from GinaK Designs "Enjoy the Sunshine".
FYI: I made NINE of these :D
