MTS116 Birthday Wishes

Happy Tuesday, friends!  In my effort to stash-bust, I've reached waaaay back into my DSP as well as my stamps to create today's card, which uses the Match the Sketch sketch challenge:

As well, most shades of purple are sadly ignored in my crafting, so I forced myself to use some Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant hues:

The stamps are from an older SU set called Punch Potpourri, and the sentiment is from Papertrey's Mixed Messages.  I punched a butterfly and embossed it, and added some pearls.  Finally, it was all adhered to a panel that was embossed with a Tim Holtz Brick embossing folder:

Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy asked Grampy to build a doll bed, so he got to work sawing some wood:

He assembled it, then painted it blue (because it was for her boy doll, AJ!):

And she helped a little too!  She's also wearing her mommy's apron from 4H!  

 Enjoy your day!

That's a good grandpa! You did a great job with your color challenge. Those colors are seldom used in my stash, as well.

I don't use purples very often either. You've done a beautiful job with them and I adore that vellum butterfly! This is lovely LeAnne. What a good grampy ;)
