Forgotten and Never Before Used

 Good morning!  Today I am playing with colors that I seldom use....purples and lavenders.  I was inspired to use these colors by the photo inspiration in the Fusion Challenge and I also used the sketch too.   When I was looking for a floral stamp to use, I came across a Martha Stewart set that I bought for $1.99 many years ago but had never taken out of the packaging.  The flower stamps were great for my Fusion card as well as Darnell's NBUS challenge.  I also found a background that I had made but never used.  The background was made with white glossy paper that I embossed with 2 EF's, one of which I inked showing the design in purple and I also sponged with blue ink. Finished with a sentiment embossed with gold EP.

Fusion Card Challenge:  See graphic on right. I used colors and floral theme from photo with the sketch.
NBUS Challenge #4:  Darnell has another challenge for us to use Never Before Used Schtuff with a theme of Anything Goes.  I have used NBU Martha Stewart Stamp set and also NBU Glaze pens in Purple and Blue.
613 Avenue Create Challenge:  Anything Goes with Option of Purple
Seize The Birthday: Anything Goes with focus on Sentiment.
Mine is Anything goes.
