The challenge this week on Our Daily Bread designs was to use purple on our cards, and I have my great niece who is turning 6 next month so I thought the sisters stamp set would be cute for her card.  I think I used every shade of purple I have on this card, LOL!  If you would like to play along with the challenge this week you can read all about it on their Blog HERE .

I embossed the image and the sentiment with clear embossing powder over my purple ink.

Well Today is my 50th Birthday, I had meant to get this posted yesterday but let's just say yesterday was one of those days that didn't go anything like I had planned.  I was planning on doing a post today of a little give away I want to do, but I don't have a picture yet of what I wanted to include and I have a busy day ahead of me today so I will try and get that posted tomorrow with hopefully my inspiration card also since it will be the 15th of the month, so stay tuned for all of that, hopefully tomorrow.

Hope you all enjoy a great weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and your great encouragements,

What a darling card Connie. Love the silhouette image and the sponging. The scallop border looks great on the side.
