Another Modern Basics Flower Card

Modern Basics + a square punch + corner rounder + bling = happy fun!



What a relief to know I'm not the only person who avoids colors (such as purples) on cards for no good reason. The Memento inks have made me a huge fan of orange...a color that I previously avoided because I just didn't like it. But with the bright, happy graduated shades Memento offers, orange has won my heart.

Memento purples just aren't as appealing. They are growing on me, though.

But really, all colors are wonderful when used right. We might have preferences or prejudices, but they all serve a purpose. Isn't it great that we have such a varied selection?


Supplies
stamps: Papertrey Modern Basics, Simple Little Things
ink: Memento
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: rhinestone, square punch (1"), Corner Chomper, dimensionals

  6. I happen to love orange, so this almost made me burst into song. Purple, however, is iffy for me. Yes, it's great we have choices and I enjoy seeing both how colors I do and do not like are used. I haven't become a convert to purple and pinks yet, but one never knows. The ink companies are good at making a wide array of colors to suit us all.

  10. Wow! I have always loved Modern Basics, but somehow it's never made it to the top of the wish list and been ordered. I think you've sold me on biting the bullet and getting it. So versatile.
