OSAAT #229 - Purple Jack

Hi friends.  I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday. As I am writing this on Saturday evening, I just want you to know that this is the first day in 3 weeks that I have NOT had a sore throat.  I do hope that it's finally gone for good. I guess I'll see in the morning. Thanks for all your well wishes through these trying weeks. I was finally able to get my house cleaned up and the floors scrubbed. Good thing since my kids came over for dinner.  It turned out pretty good too.

Our theme for One Stitch at a Time this week is Anything Goes with the Color Purple. I thought this would be an easy one since purple is my favorite color, but I ran into a few snags. As I was trying to figure out a layout and what dp to use with it, I realized that I had NO pattern paper in all my stash that would really go with this image. For those that know me, you would not believe that is possible because my paper stash is pretty large. I finally had to go to the Internet and search for some digital papers to use.  Finally found a collection by Jessica Stewart, but I only ended up using one of the papers. I think it was perfect.

When you go over to the OSAAT challenge blog you may notice a slight difference in the card that is posted there in the Design Team.  That's because I had completely forgotten to put the sentiment on it, but I wanted it on there, so I fixed that tonight.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Floppy Latte Designs -  Jack In the Box
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Eat Cake
  • Cardstock - Xpress it Blending Card; Stampin Up - Lovely Lilac
  • Designer Paper - Digital Collection by Jessica Stewart
  • Ink - Stampin Up - Lovely Lilac
  • Accessories - MFT - Flourish Die; Lavender Stickles; Ribbon from my stash
  • Copic Markers - E93, E95, E99; G05, G16, G28; R22, R27, R37, R43; N1, N3, N5, N7; V17, V22, V25; Y18, Y19, Y35
Our sponsor for this challenge is our own Stitchy Bear who will give this prize package away to one lucky winner.

Now hop on over to the OSAAT Challenge and see what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire you and I hope that you'll come along and play with us this week.  After all - it's PURPLE!
