One Card for 3 Challenges!!

I always feel as though I am cheating a little when I combine challenges but this one just happened that way.



I started to make a card following this sketch by Dawny on Papertake Weekly that I was going to combine with today's challenge on 365 Cards 'Colour me anything but that' the idea is to make a card using your least favourite colour, for card making my least favourite is purple, I never quite know what to do with it.

I then realised that my card also fitted in with the challenge on Cute Card Thursday which is to make a card for a Family Member

So here is my card which follows the sketch, uses my least favourite colour and is for a Family member.



I used Bazzill (Velvet) for the card base which had a piece of the purple diamond pattern laid onto it, the paper is English Paper Co.

I then used a piece of fabric; which I thought looked as though it would be used for a mans suit; to make the next layer followed by my stamped image which was matted onto the Velvet Bazzill.
The sentiment is computer generated and is layered onto Dark Brown imitation Leather and fastened by brads.

I must admit that having made this I will possibly use this colour again

Hope you like it!

Love this - such a beautiful card! You know, I don't use a lot of purple either, although I do like purple! Great job on working 3 challenges in 1 card!
