Stampin for the Weekend-Purple and Yellow

There is a new blog called Stampin for the Weekend and this is their first challenge. The challenge was to use the colors purple and yellow. I stamped the rose in VersaMark and the embossed it with Enchanted Gold embossing powder. I then colored them with chalks. The Congratulations is from Hero Arts. I added a ribbon and patterned paper from my stash. My high school colors were purple and gold so this wasn't so hard for me! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. These are very beautiful roses and your embossing is super Julia, love your use of the chalks and your ribbon is such a perfect finishing detail.
    Thank you for joining us on our very first challenge at "Stampin for the Weekend" and we hope you will play along with us on a weekly basis.

    This is such a beautiful card, the roses are gorgeous, I think heat embossing is a fab techinique and the colours you have chosen are so lovely. I also like the script background paper, it sets your card off so well. Thank you so much for taking part in our very first challenge, it would be lovely to see again in future challenges. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and good luck xx vicki xx
