365 Cards - #86 This Will Be Grape Fun!!

The second day of the Cutting Cafe week over at 365 Cards.  The challenge today was to either use grapes on your card or use purple as your primary colour and include at least five circles on your card.  At first I was having difficulty deciding what to do and then I had a great idea and this is the result.  I don't mind it actually.  Also seeing as purple is my favourite colour along with orange I had no trouble coming up with the colour purple lol (I crack me up. . . get it? The Colour Purple) hehehe.  The designer paper was from my stash and one of the first papers I ever got so it is unknown brand.  Anyway that is me for today.

In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Edited to add: I don't know what is happening with Mr Linky but I loaded my card up to 365 Cards at 12.15am last night and when I just got up this morning at 8.10am I saw that my name was not even on the list so I had to re-add it.  This is about the 4th time this has happened.  Is anyone having problems like this?

Supplies: SU Perfect Plum and Whisper White cardstock.  SU Scribbles stamp set.  Purple satin ribbon from ribbon stash.  SU 1/2 inch circle punch.  SU white gel pen.  Kaisercraft rhinestones.  Ranger Distress Inks Lavender and Tea Dye.  Assorted designer papers for the 1/2 inch circles.  SU Sponge dauber, Basic Black and Elegant Eggplant stamp pads.

Michelle, your card is absolutely beautiful, I love the flourish, the buttons, the hint of white.

yes, Mr. Linky bites!!! Your card, is awesome, however! I also find that some page don't want to load, or they load real slow. I hope that the issues are rectified. I don't want to miss your cards, or any other 365er for that matter.

hugz and luv, Kristen
