The Card Concept Challenge 9 - Purple

You know how I 'love' purple, right? Well I admit that this time, I do actually like it quite a bit. Which is great, because it's the theme of the current Card Concept Challenge.

I opted for a lovely springtime purple crocus, using an old Stampin' Up floral set with a heavy-lined sentiment from MFT Stamps. (and I used Concord Crush, which is quite a blue-purple).

Solid stamps and bold contrasts are staples of graphic designs. Surround them with lots of white space (actually, that's part of the contrast, isn't it?) and then you've got both Clean & Graphic!

Now it's your turn!

Our Rules
  1. Use the Challenge to create a card.
  2. Choose one of the design team "styles" to create your card. Click HERE for the different styles summary.
  3. Explain in your post which style you used.
  4. Link up your blog post here, not your whole blog.
  5. Comment on the card ahead of you and behind you in the linky. Everyone loves comments!

This challenge will end on Monday, May 12 at 3 pm EDT.

So crisp and bold, Ardyth ... I'm not generally a purple person either, but this is a stunner, the colour's so fabulous! Anita :)

Purple really is one of those colors that needs to be BOLD! And bold it is! This sentiment is spot-on perfect! Purple mission accomplished!

I'm a purple girl myself - it's my favorite color, so this great card looks like perfection to me! I love the pop of orange color with the green stem flourish! Very pretty!
