I'm not picky. Any shade of purple excites me. I often surround myself with purple--my cell phone, my purse, my bride's maids dresses 17 years ago, our bedroom in the farmhouse we lived in 5 years ago (much to the chagrin of The Accountant), the lovely lilacs and tulips and hyacinths that decorate my yard in the spring, and today's card.
My niece also loves purple so today's card, fashioned with this week's MojoMonday sketch, is hers. Having a February birthday isn't fun. It would come in second on the list of Worst Possible Months To Celebrate A Birthday (the first being, obviously, December because birthday presents wrapped in Christmas paper is so tacky).
I loved this card until I added the candles. I'm never sure how or where to put those. And the cupcake looked a little naked with out them. It might have been mistaken for a muffin instead of a cupcake. And we definitely couldn't have a plain ol' muffin on a birthday card!
The colors and papers I used today are: Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, and Cottage Wall DSP
