According to the Pantone View, "Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute™ has been designating a Color of the Year to express in color what is taking place in the global zeitgeist. A color that will resonate around the world, the PANTONE Color of the Year is a reflection of what people are looking for, what they feel they need that color can help to answer. Not necessarily the hot fashion color of the moment, but a color crossing all areas of design which is an expression of a mood, an attitude, on the part of the consumers."
 
 
 

 
For my card, I used Decembers release of Lots of Thoughts for the main image which I stamped onto some Flourishes classic ivory cardstock and colored it with Copics.  I then fussy cut it out before popping it up over the Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Hourglass die that I sponged in the clouds for the background. The patterned paper is from Basic Greys What's Up collection which has been paired with some unknown purple cardstock.  (I think it is SU!)  The sentiment is stamped out using Memento black and Grape Jelly and is popped up as well.  To finish it off, I placed some rhinestones on the sides of sentiment and on the ribbon.  In order for the ribbon to match, I used some white seam binding that I colored in with my Copics and ruffled it onto place.  I realized that I just don't own or use much purple! But it worked out well and this color is really growing on me!
 
 Have fun using purple in your creations this week! This week, we have asked the Design Team to join us in celebrating the colour purple. Take a moment and leave some lavender love on each one of our designers this week!

  1. Deborah, this card is so sweet! Beautiful coloring on the image, but what I really love is the overall card design with the cloudy die cut and twine "lifting up" the sentiment that looks like a hot air balloon behind the balloon stamped image! And, with the balloon dp behind that, it reminds me of the hot air balloon festivals I used to go to every year when I lived in Texas. Clever!!! Your bow is gorgeous, too...I love the way you ruffle up the tails.
