None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

The Purples have it ...

A flower's appeal is in its contradictions — so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect.
~Terri Guillemets

Good morning!
Another Tuesday is upon us and with it, the last week of September. Anyone else wondering what happened to the month? 

Ah well then, on a positive note, another Color challenge started today at The Outlawz Challenges
These are our colors... you MUST use purple and any of the other colors noted. This one has a double twist ... use a flower and a birthday theme!




Here is my 5 x 7 card


Supplies
Cardstock from The Paper Studio and Stampin Up!
Die "Stitched Banners" from Gina Marie Designs
Die "Swirl with Leaves" from Darice
Embossing folder "Bit of Paisley" from Cuttlebug
Liquid pearls from Ranger

Our sponsor this month is Through the Craft Room Door with a one year subscription to the Magazine.

Thanks for stopping by!
(Hugs) Cara

Oh what a beautiful statement the big purple flower made against the golden orange layer and white embossed base card Cara! The embossed design is very lovely and your card design elements made this card so fitting for any occasion. This month definitely go by fast. Wish we could slow down time a bit. Hope you have a lovely last week of September Cara. Hugs.
