Lavender, celery and gray

Here's the current photo inspiration at CR84FN for the next 2 weeks:


For someone who doesn't much care for purples, I certainly am getting my quota of them this week!  Still, I do like this lovely green next to the lavender.


supplies: dove gray and medium gray, K&Company papers from Susan Winget's Spring Blossom (green) and Watercolor Bouquet (lavender), Penny Black 4037K Mixed Media and Papertrey Ink Embellishments (sentiment), versafine onyx black ink, lavender and green Memento markers,Nesties labels one,  printed lavender ribbon, square button, white twine

  2. Beautiful card, Lin. I'm with you though, purple is not my color, don't really work with it much or like it really. But you've made me like purple, if even just a little!
