Plum Crazy - Moxie Fab Challenge

I had to start a plum card instantly! Cath is hosting another stylish Moxie Fab World Challenge called "Plum Crazy" and inspired me with wonderful pics again! Pluminess all over! Go and play, get inspired, look at the fabulous submissions, have fun! No need to hurry though, the deadline is November 18 - but I couldn`t stop myself :)
I love to combine plum with grey:




This gorgeous Hero Arts brocade stamp is so elegant, I love it!! I used the background technique Jennifer McGuire taught over at 2peas. The inks are Ranger, the other stamps are Papertrey Ink and the flowers and pearls are Prima Marketing. Those beautiful flourishes in the corners are Melissa Frances - they arrived just in time!

I might try a plum christmas card...

Have a great Friday and thank you for visiting and for all your sweet comments!

Hugs,
Vanessa
