#33 Purely Plum at Rainbow Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the first of the month, so it means it's time for a new challenge at Rainbow Card Challenge.  Our theme this month is Purely Plum, and please, if you must, use only a hint of a preferably neutral color.  After all, we are a monochromatic challenge!

And here's my card...

The card was created with a then new to me duet plate, but instead of threading it with ribbon, I used offcuts of the parchment, showcasing the color flooded side.  I then attached the panel directly to the card base by hiding double sided tape behind the faux ribbon

Card: Unbranded white and Clarity's plum parchment
Groovi plates: Congratulations Ribbon Lace Duet
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating and cutting tools, and a gold Posca paint pen

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.


  1. Hi Em this is a gorgeous card. I love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Oh my such a beautiful detailed design, love that deep plum color and the gold is just wonderful with it!

  3. Beautiful design. Love the color. You know I love the lattice work.

    We had some minor cellar flooding but we are both OK. Our little town saw some major flooding but further downstream they had record flooding. I have not seen any pictures of the local damage but it is not good.

    Love, Hugs and Blessings,

  4. Amazing work as always! Thank you the nice comments on my blog!

  5. Such a gorgeously designed project you have created here. Nice work.
    Thank you for sharing with us over here at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge and best of luck with your entry.
