Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #127

Well It' s Sunday so that means another challenge over at Operation Write Home.  Here is the sketch card
And here is my card.

I used all SU colors and a (new to me) Sizzix embossing folder.  The sentiment is by CC Rubber Stamps and the ribbon is from Joann's that I've had for years.  I edged the sentiment panel with a Krylon Gold Leaf Pen and added gold pearl gems from Pizzazz APlenty that I won last week.  I love them and will have to order some more very soon because I know I'll go through these in nothing flat.  It doesn't show too well, but there is also one on the center of the bow.  I hope you all enjoy your evening and I look forward to seeing you again soon.  Thank you so very much for stopping by.


  1. Donna, this is so pretty! LOVE all that purple and don't think I've ever seen that embossing folder before but really like it! Of course, I love the outlining with the gold pen and the pearls too.
    Hope you're having a good Sunday!

  2. Ohhh, this is my most favorite color and I likey :) Those gold pearls look great and you're gonna LOVE the gems from Pizzazz Aplenty! She has a big sale starting July 1st - just saying :)
    The embossing looks so pretty and I like that ribbon too! Very pretty card!
    Enjoy your week ;)

  3. this for me!! Just kidding, but I sure do like it! I have been thinking about you and hope you are doing okay. I saw something on the news tonight and I think it was a fire in your little town.

    I have been wondering about you and will have to remember to pop you and email and check up on things with you and your family.


    PS: I enjoy shopping at PizzazAplenty and always seem to find some fabulous sales. I buy all my goodies there to make stick pins too! :)

  4. This is very pretty, Donna! I love the purple and that gold bling adds the right finishing touch!

  5. Nice job with this week's Sketch! I like the tone-on-tone approach you took.

  6. Love the corner treatment and the purple gingham...sweet card! TFS!!!

  7. Donna what a wonderful card. I like the purple tone on tone and the gold edging is just the perfect touch. The gold pearls are very pretty on the card too. I also like the pattern from the embossing folder. I'll have to lok for that one


  8. Donna, this is so elegant and purple is my FAVORITE. Congrats on the new Sizzix embossing folder. It looks very versatile; I can tell you'll get a lot of good use out of it. Thanks for sharing!

  9. this is a very elegant card! Love the textured background! Aren't the embossing folders fun?! The gold pearls are a nice accent as is the gold leaf pen.

  10. You already know I adore the lavender, Donna, but your overall design is so striking! I can't wait until I have time to do some more OWH cards. The schedule is really getting crowded. :-D Hugs.

  11. Stunning with my fave color. So elegant. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the sweet love. Hugs,

  12. Very pretty. Like the monotone purple colors.
    Simply elegant!


  13. Hi Donna, Love the embossing on your card and the purple color scheme. A very elegant, lovely card.

    Your dsign is giving me an idea about using some of my more linear embossing folders, hmmmm. Thanks for the inspiration because it's been bugging me that I haven't used some of them - they came as part of a set.

  14. Wow. That's so special! The embossing is such a great touch and the color scheme is both pretty and elegant! And I LOVE those pearls!
