WS - Purple

For my entry in this week's Wednesday Stamper I want to share this purple card I made for one of my forum friends. It was her birthday the day after mine & I forgot to blog it. I have been very preoccupied with work & having eye strain has kept me from my computer.
I do love purple so thought I'd cheat & enter this. I inked the vellum with dusty concorde distress ink & the pattern picked up the colour. It was plain white vellum to begin. I made the background piece to attach the vellum to & stamped the tag with part of a stamp. Purple is one of my most favourite colours as well as yesterday's chocolate.
I hope to get back to crafting again soon but you don't realise just how much you need your eyes until they hurt!
