Purple snowflakes!

Ok, so I know snowflakes aren't purple! But I have had a real block with the new Stampin' Up Vintage Violet. I can't seem to make anything work with it and it is very frustrating because I really like the color. Well, I fiddled and messed and finally decided I like this combination.

Vintage Violet and Almost Amethyst. My Amethyst is a little on the blue side but I think this worked out pretty good. The stamp sets used are print pattern, snowflakes, and an Anna Griffin set. The saying I purchased at AC Moore.

Ok, so yes I said Anna Griffin set! I didn't think I would ever buy one of those! But I found a steal (at least I thought so) at a store we have here locally. It is fairly new and very similar to a Big Lots. They had the set in there, it came in a box with 4 little stamping spots, ribbon and some card stock. And I must confess, I really bought it for the box it was all in. I was envisioning a really cool altered box. So, hopefully I can make that one of my projects in the near future. I will keep you posted on that.
