Welcome to another week of Coloring Down the Lines!! This week we are going purple-Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant!

You've probably hopped over from Helen's blog!! Glad you're here!!! Hope I can live up to her beautiful creation!!!

So these 2 colors are kinda tricky! They're VERY close!!! So here's my card this week!

I decided it's never too early to start on Mother's Day!!! So I'm into this new style of card! Just a base with a little 3x3 card attached!!! I think it's fun & different! I've given several of these & they seem to draw very positive reactions!!

I know its hard to tell in the pic, but the base and flower is Perfect Plum. The 3x3 card base is Elegant Eggplant. The stamping is also done with the Elegant Eggplant.  I tried to enhance it with my photo editing program because the 2 colors didn't really contrast in the photo! Hope you can see them here!!

I used my Secret Garden stamp set & Framelits! A  little watercoloring happenin' on the Whisper White.  I also used the brand new 
Designer Typeset Photopolymer stamp set for the banner & the letters MOM!!! This is a great new product from Stampin' Up!! You can order them now! Hopefully there'll be more like them in the new catalog! Super sticky on the blocks & so easy to place. Be sure not to confuse them with the acrylic stamps! They're 2 different animals!!!!

Here's a close up of that flower!

And the inside!!!

Fun, huh? Like I said, different but packs a punch! Plenty of room for a simple sentiment and note.

Gotta love that Teeny Tiny Wishes!!! I think that's probably one of my most used stamp sets!!!

So please go visit Liz at her blog & tell her I said hi!!! Can't wait to see her creation!!!

Until next time!!!

Happy Stampin!!!
