One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Dynamic Duos # 68

Do you see that we get to pick our second color for this challenge?  Well, there is nothing like purple and it!  If you want to select your own color and play along, go HERE to the Dynamic Duos Blog and show us what you like to pair up with the plum color!
I had a group of ladies over for lunch (we all went on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, Croatia three years ago) last week and they bought some of my cards...all the sympathy's and the praying for you cards all left with them!  Is it that time of our life where we are in more need of those cards?  Sad to think about.  But I thought I should start adding to my stash.

stamps:  Beautiful Butterflies
dies:  Beautiful Butterflies, circle nestabilities
paper:  fine linen, spring moss

inks and pens:  PTI plum pudding (stamped off once), memento pear tart marker (dash lines)
misc:  perfect pearls: forever violet,  forever green


  1. Colleen, so beautiful! There is something about those two colors together, they make for fabulous cards and yours is no exception. So lovely.

  2. This is so very pretty and soothing. I love purple and green together, too. I find that when I let friends and family take cards from my stash, it is the sympathy ones that go quickest. Sad, but so true.

  3. Lovely card! Purple and green are very pretty together.
    I'm so glad you joined us this week at Dynamic Duos. :)
