Silver & Purple

Hello everyone,

I have to say that one of my all time favourite challenges is Susan Raihala's One Layer Wednesday. Unfortunately due to busy circumstances, she's will have to forgo OLW challenges until November - a crushing announcement. However, thanks to Jennifer Styles at Styles Ink One Layer Wednesdays II has been born and will cover challenges for October. Yea Jennifer! The challenge for this week is to craft a one layer holiday card without using white, cream, red or green as a base.

The card base is Stampin' Up Elegant Eggplant. The image is The Stamp Barn for Heather's Stamping Haven. It was embossed with Close To My Heart Silver Pearl. The sentiment is Cornish Heritage Farms Vintage Christmas Expressions also embossed in Silver Pearl. The embellishments are Close To My Heart Sparkles.

I love this card. It is almost an opposite of yesterday's card. I managed to craft this one in a single attempt but, it is not as straight as I would like though not the worst I've ever done either. I know we're suppose to limite the bling on one layer cards but this layout and the image just beg for bling. This was a really wonderful challenge, the kind I really, really like. I can't wait to see what comes next.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. Like that great image and the embossing on eggplant-pretty.

  2. This is gorgeous!! I love all shades of purple; and the combination of purple and silver is a winner. Love the card.

  3. Very pretty! I love silver on a dark background.

    This is a lovely and elegant card and the bling is a perfect accent.

    Great job on the challenge!
