Purple Topiary

I combined this week's CPS sketch #174 with LPS's color challenge (LPSC75) Orchid, Razzleberry and Old Olive and came up with this.
All that Razzleberry is so yummy!  I recently saw a card by Angie Hagist in the Summer 2010 Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine that had strips of paper layered to look like siding on a house.  It inspired me to cut strips and layer them on the same color card base.  I left some of the card base showing thru between each strip, plus I added some embossing - lovin' the result!  (Warning:  that means you will be seeing strips again in the future.)

Details:  Stamp - I Heart & Lily and Lucy Messages (LPS), CS - SU, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and Ink - SU.


  1. What a great idea, the embossed tone on tone adds so much to the card. Hope you are having a great weekend.

  2. Julie, I miss you! I love this card and all that razzleberry is delicious!

  3. love it. And I sooo do like the funky shape if the image/sentiment :)

  5. This is great! Love the embossed background with the color on color, and that funky shape is too fun!
