Quick (crafty) Post...

This is going to be quick, I have about 10 minutes to get this all typed up before I have go to training for work so bear with me if it's choppy and crazy. :) I actually got something done over the last week, ONE thing but it's better than nothing.. Right? Well my sisters birthday was on October 15th and I hadn't seen her but I made this card and was able to hand deliver it this weekend.. Her favorite color is purple so that's why it's so purple--y.. :)
Regular purple cardstock, tore some of the same base color for the center of the inside strip, I got a few different purplish patterned papers to line the torn edge with.
The purple flower is Prima of course, white grommet inside and I cut strips of white cardstock to make the background flower, I frayed the edges with a sharpie and ta-da. :)
I added some chipboard for the "happy" and I wrote in Birthday in a white pen, I love it!I got a matching paperclip to add the gift card (itunes) woohoo, and I added her name with some new sticky letters I got at Hobby Lobby.. :) Yay.. The colors aren't all purple but they make the inside pop! :) I added my sisterly words to the inside with the same white pen. It came out wayyyy better than I imagined it. So I'm happy.. Let me know what you think! :)
