Icy Leaves, Purple Sky

Happy Saturday! It is still freezing here in the Midwest but the wind has died down in St. Louis so it actually felt warm at 6 degrees. Well, maybe I should say felt warmer than the past few days.

This card was created for two challenges. The SCS Inspirational Challenge, IC214, finding inspiration from M.Wilson's etsy store. I chose her Indigo and Onyx print except I changed the colors to purple hues. The second challenge was the Paper Craft Planet's Sketch Challenge, SK010910.

I find purple challenging although I love it. I just never seem happy with coordinating colors with purple (except for my fav- blue). I messed around for hours, changed colors, then finally settled with the pixie pink. What's your opinion of purple? I am not sure how much I like the card, but I like that it is done. Even though it sounds like I am whinning~ I had a wonderful afternoon with no commitments & I just played! Maybe tomorrow will be a better mojo day.

Have a great evening!
