Forever and Always...Paper Smooches SPARKS: Anything Goes, Muse #65, Less is More #170: Three Colours, The Card Concept #9: Monochromatic Purple, Simon Says Wed. Anything Goes

Sunday evening...a day of staying inside, crafting and puttering about.  Since I've chatted immensely my last couple of posts (yes, the snow continues to fall...), I'll aim for brevity this time around.  Only one thing outside of card-making to share: chicken burritos, home-made by my husband, for dinner. SCORE!!

My card for this post is a simple little number, and I'm quite surprised by the number of challenges it fits...
Muse #65, where pretty simplicity reigns supreme with this week's inspiration by Gillian Ross

Less is More #170, where we're invited to use three colours or one colour, three shades;

The Card Concept #9: Monochromatic Purple (yes, a challenging colour for moi)


                   
Now, after all that hoopla, here it is: clean and layered, I think, and purple - definitely purple - with a Wink of Stella-ed ampersand....


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!!1

NOTE:  So honoured and delighted that this little number was selected as PS SPARKS Featured Player. THANK YOU!!
