Color Combo

 It felt soooo good to sit down and create something special for a very special lady in my life, my MIL, whose  Birthday lands just shy of Christmas day. Since her birthday and Christmas have more than likely been mixed together for years (as my brothers has), I wanted to make something that wasn't Christmasy at all and have always been fond of purple and green together. The best part is my MIL loves purple too! 

This weeks Paper Players challenge is to use your favorite color combo, with so many to choose from, it's a hard task BUT this is by far my favorite! I've declared purple to be my favorite color since I was 8, not to mention is was our accent color in our black/white wedding AND lilacs (my favorite flowers) even made it into the bouquet! Mmmm, the smell makes me long for Spring again...

I pulled out some Always Artichoke & Concord Crush and got to work...after coloring my sassy little lady, I just couldn't resist glamming up her shoes a bit with some fine glitter and purple bling for even more sas. I would love to slip my feet into a pair of these fur lined flats, just screaming for a good heal tap to take me home for the holidays! The cake looks so yummy with sparkly chocolate fluff, I almost licked it but then thought it was probably best not to have fuzz shavings on my tongue. A piece of Concord Crush DSP for a pretty wallpapered background and I used both the white oval & Concord Crush frame from my new SU! Sizzix Scallop Oval Frame die.
 A perfect sentiment from the Hostess Birthday Bakery set and a bit of Always Artichoke ink dabbed onto the Modern Label XL Punch(ed) out and popped up to separate the whites from blending together.
 almost good enough to eat
there's no place like home, there's no place like HOME!!
