Plum Crazy!

This is random, but have you ever tried using Fruity Pebbles instead of Rice Krispies in Rice Krispies Treats? SO GOOD!



Tonight I tackled Cath's latest challenge. I love this idea of a plum challenge. I actual took a nod from my own wedding to create this card. Just like for my wedding I used several different tones of purple.

The first thing I did for this card was create a grid. I wanted a small grid, so I used the grid from Guide Lines, to double stamp it to get my elegant eggplant grid.

Then I embossed stamps from Damask Designs on top. Then I inked up the rest with more elegant eggplant.


I especially love how you can still see the grid. I added my other shades of purple with the background color and rhinestones, and there you go! I just think plum is so elegant.

Stamps: Damask Designs, Guide Lines (PTI)
Cardstock: White, Elegant Eggplant (SU); Plum Pudding (PTI)
Embossing Powder: Clear Ranger
Ribbon: SU
