Just A Hello in Purple and Yellow

When I saw the first challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend to use purple and yellow, I didn't think I was going to be able to do much with it, but it turns out, it's not such a bad color combo. Like I've said before, I love this purple dotty patterned paper. It just inspires me :)

I'm submitting this card to several challenges! If there was only a challenge about piling on multiple challenges into one...oh, wait, there is! Anyway, like I've said before, I love this concept!
  1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - for Challenge #54 Sketch by Sonja
  2. Pile it On - for Challenge #1 Non-stamped sentiment - I used stickers for the "hi" sentiment. I'm also submitting this for the DT call :)
  3. Paperlicious Designs - for Creative Challenge #10 Paper Piercing - I paper pierced the scalloped circle
  4. Simon Says Challenge - for Let's Craft with Tim - I used Tim Holtz Embossing Ink and Distress Embossing Powder Antique Linen for the embossed flourish stamp
  5. Dutch Dare Challenge - for Challenge #51 Decorate the Inside of the Card
  6. Stampin' for the Weekend - for Challenge #1 Purple and Yellow
  7. Paper Makeup Stamps - for Challenge #14 I Can See Clearly Now - I used acetate flowers
