Stamp Simply #126 - Green and Blech!


Yep, that's what I said.... green and blech! Today's Stamp Simply challenge from Sharon Johnson is to use the colors green and purple. I don't get along with purple. I am not fond of purple. Never met a shade of purple that I liked one tiny bit. So here's my reluctant attempt to use green and purple (with a few other colors thrown in to make me happy!) I used Lori's sketch from this past Saturday on Paper Craft Planet for the layout, reversing it to better accomodate my image.
Sharon has a fabulous sample for you to see on her blog... she rocked these colors! As did the rest of the Stamp Simply team...

Tammy, cute card! I didn't know that about you and purple. Really? I love the color combo purple and green. You did a great job with the colors even though you don't like purple.

You and my mother--she didn't like purple one bit, either, LOL! I think you did a fine job with it! Love that little image (of course :)) and the way you colored her. Fabulous card, my friend!

As much as you hate purple, your card turned out beautiful!!!

I on the other hand LOVE purple! So much that I have some purple hair!!! But I understand your dislike, because I HATE mustard yellow!!!

Very sweet card and such a "subtle" use of the purple. How sad for the color that you don't much care for it, me I kinda like it so I might have to give this one a whirl.
