Summer Silhouettes Color Combo Two Ways

Wild Wasabi, Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand and Wisteria Wonder:   A delightful Color Combo shared in both of today’s Summer Silhouettes Cards.

Green and Purple is one of my most favorite color combinations!  Whether paired with crisp whisper white or the more subtle very vanilla card stock, it’s a color combination which is sure to please!summer silhouettes and loving thoughts stamp set in green and purple shadesThis first sample is joined by stamped images from the En Francais and Loving Thought Stamp Sets.lattice mimics garden lattice for and cheerful get well card for milSame colors… changing up the punched sentiment, adding brads and an additional stamped image (lattice border) and left out the tiny violet flowers.  LOL, not sure which one I like better!lattice stamped image covered in leaves and gold bradsAfter masking the Very Vanilla Card Stock with a torn piece of grid paper, En Francais was stamped on the left side of the card.   LOL, I meant to sponge the edge before removing the grid paper mask but totally forgot about it until the card was completed! 

This one will be sent off to my MIL who is recovering from a recent illness at a Jamesville, NY nursing home!  I’ve been sending her a card every couple of days… LOL, leave them on the counter for my DH to sign/write a note and he never makes the time.  The other night he was sitting in his favorite chair, and I brought him the card and pen but he complained his fingers hurt so he couldn’t write!  (Understandably, he is a self employed tile setter.. but come on man… this is your MOM!!)

Oh well.. off to write another encouraging note!  See you tomorrow with another new card share.  I’ve found some inspiration in doctors offices for this weekend’s Super Saturday Tutorial Winking smile !!  One just never knows when inspiration will strike, or where you’ll find it!

Okay, your creations have convinced me to purchase this stamp set, LOL! Purples and greens are a favorite combo of mine, too. Love your use of En Francais.

I love green and purple together too. So sweet of you to make (& 'write') so many cards for your MIL. I'm sure they will help to make her feel better.

Geez I hope we get some of these stamp sets Down Under when our new catty is released in a couple of months. It is hard seeing so many pretty sets and having to wait. Love both cards Sharon. I too am a big fan of green and purple together. A card in the post is the best "get well" tonic out.
