Violet Birthday Wishes, SIP47

Hi friends! I hope your week is going well so far. It's Tuesday and that means time for a new challenge at Stamp Ink Paper. This week it's a theme: One Element Wonder. Simple, right? Just use one of something. I don't why I struggled with this one but I did. In the end I decided that the challenge badge had a big purple flower, so I made a card with a big purple flower, lol! 

Both the image and sentiment are from a Technique Tuesday stamp set called Agapanthus. The first time I used this set I watercolored the image, but this time I colored it with Copics. Either way it's really fun to color and such a pretty image. I kept everything else CAS.

I'm also playing along with the challenge at Seize the Birthday, where the toppings option is "Coloring".

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Agapanthus (Technique Tuesday)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Basic Black (Stampin Up), Blending Card Stock (Copic)
Patterned Paper: Subtles Stack (Stampin Up)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic

Just thought I'd sign off with a picture of my silly helper, Ollie. He's always right there ready to assist, especially with ribbon!

Thanks for stopping by and I would be so happy if you left a comment! Then, head over to see what the rest of our Design Team has created at Stamp Ink Paper!
