Don’t forget that Stampin’ UP’s Year End Clearance starts today – click the pink purse to the right to check out the deals available!!

Introducing Magenta Madness with an Inspirational Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Oh my gosh – Magenta Madness certainly packs some WOW factor!  I have to say that I was a bit doubtful of using all this color for my card today, don’t get me wrong – I love the color  – but have paired it with Smoky Slate to give a bit of  neutral support.

The Forever Fern Stamp Set has been so very popular since its debut at the beginning of June, it is part of the Forever Greenery Suite which invokes thoughts of lush greens – but I have taken the liberty of using Magenta Madness – ‘cos not all leaves have to be green, do they?
