Highland Heather For Colour Creations Blog Hop

Highland Heather is our colour for week 22, a lovely softer, subtle version of purple. It contrasts beautifully with Gorgeous Grape (darker) and Fresh Freesia (lighter and pinker). The participants in Colour Creations are all Stampin' Up! demonstrators and members of Art With Heart.

Hand-Penned Petals was one of my first picks when the catalogue was released, and it remains a favourite still. Building up the layers gives added interest to this card.

Although there is a lovely script to the sentiments included with Hand-Penned Petals, sometimes it's not the right one. That's when Many Messages comes in handy, and I usually stamp out multiples and keep them in a little tub, ready to use.

The Highland Heather ribbon is in the Annual catalogue, and with one selvedge cut off to fray the ribbon and expose the silver thread,  it shows the lovely glitter. I sewed it onto the card, since I had matching thread on my sewing machine at the time.


And now it's time to see my lovely friend, Kate Morgan's, beautiful creation.
