Really Reasonable Ribbon Purple Challenge

RRR2quilt

Hello everyone! Today I'm excited to be sharing a card I made for this week's Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge: "Violets, and Purples, and Plums...Oh MY!" Kelley, owner of Our Daily Bread designs is sponsoring the challenge this week, so several of us on the ODBD team made samples along with the talented RRR team. My lavender bow and the rolled rose is made with this gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. I love making these rolled roses and this narrow ribbon makes a nice dainty size rose.

My Scripture stamp is from ODBD Scripture Collection 7, and I used Fancy Labels stamped in Grape Memento Ink, and colored the back ground of the label with a Copic Marker. My base is Bazzill, and my quilt squares are scraps from Kaisercraft Lilac Ave. and Memory Box Enchanted packs. I sewed each patch onto the mat. The Leaf and Bough punches are Martha Stewart, and the flourish is QuicKutz. The embossed frame is Joy Craft, which I stenciled with Grape Memento while still in the die. The deep purple roses are ZVA Creative.

Here is a close up of the lavender rolled rose I made:

Hope you enjoyed my purple and green card! I love the color combo but I had to get the photo outside, as inside it looked blue in ALL of about 30 shots, no exaggeration!!! LOL! We'd love to have you play along with the RRR challenge this week! If you'd love to win some ODBD stamps... why don't you join us! Link up your card at the Really Reasonable Blog challenge post and good luck!

Oh Grace - this is just amazingly beautiful - that rolled rose is fabulous - how do you do them??
The scripture is one of my favourites, and it has music set to it too....I have it rolling round in my head now - dare not let it out as something goes wrong between my brain and vocal chords and it is not a pleasant sound - just joyful :-).
Blessings
Maxine
