Card Patterns #12

I finally got a chance to play with the Papertrey Ink stamp set, Life. I LOVE this set!... and to think I almost didn't get it!
I used it on Card Patterns sketch #12.

I don't know why, but I am stuck on these purples, Plum Pudding and Lavender Moon from Papertrey Ink. I am normally not a *purple* kind of girl, but I'm going to have to quit saying that as I think I have used these colors on the last several cards I have made!

Thanks for stopping by!
