Purple Birthday Wishes

So yesterday I received an email from my friend Betty saying that Melanie had a challenge on her blog to make a card using the scraps that are laying around on your desk.  Now almost any other day of the year this would not be a problem for me as I tend to be a messy stamper, but I had cleaned my stamp room the night before!  What spurred me in to cleaning is that Theresa is coming over this weekend and we love to stamp together so I needed to make some room for her to work.  It is a good thing I almost never throw out any scraps that are of any size at all.  So I went through what I had and found this stamped image already completed so I just needed to make it into a card.  I did cheat just a little, the patterned paper is new, I just got my order with this new wonderful Basic Grey paper, Kioshi and I had to use it when I was working with purple!  I also worked in the sketch challenge on StampTV.  Thank you for stopping by.

Card Details
Stamps: Lovely Shelf, Spring Florals- Gina K Designs

I know you are Theresa are going to have fun together this weekend -- stamping and giggling just like when you were little (or did you fight all the time???)
