Baroque Eggplant

I made this card a few weeks ago using Splitcoast Stampers card sketch #128. It is such a great sketch! I've made a few cards using it. For the background, I used the Almost Amethyst designer paper, cut it into a 5 1/4 x 4 inch rectangle, then cut that into 4 triangles. I used one side of the paper for the top and bottom triangles, and the opposite side for the right and left triangles. The card base is Elegant Eggplant. I love this colour! I don't use it nearly enough, and the Amethyst goes really nicely with it! For the stamped part of the card, I used Whisper White and stamped the flourish from Baroque Motifs in Mellow Moss ink. Then I stamped the small flower and the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant. This was matted on Elegant Eggplant as well. Quick and simple! (I really hope I haven't copied anyone with this card. I think it's original, but I looked at so many samples using this sketch that I may have inadvertently CASEd someone. If this is your design, I do apologize, and please let me know so I can give you credit!)

I like the colours on this card so much, I decided to make a bunch of birthday cards using the design. I didn't have enough of the Amethyst designer paper, so I used Amethyst cs as the base of the card and stamped it with Fine Lace in the same colour ink. Then I stamped the main image the same way and added "Birthday Wishes" from Sincere Salutations to finish it off.
