It looks blue, but it is purple!

No, it's not a baby card or a card for a child, its' a card for a grown-up lady who loves purple and teddy bears. The thing is, the DP with spots look blue in the photo. I took pictures outdoors, indoors, with light and dark backgrounds, but it comes out blue whatever I did. But it's a purple paper, I'd describe the color as dark and light lavender. But never mind:)

I took inspiration from the design of Laurie's pencil boxes, you can find them here. I loved the office supplies look, so I made a notebook page using my Fiskars punch and used a paper clip with a star that has been in my stash for at least a couple of years. I also used 3 enamel pearls, string and a wooden teddy bear. The birthday greeting is made with my Dymo.

This card is for these challenges:
1) CASE Study Challenge – Anniversary blog hop + CASE
2) Crafty Creations - #270 Use something from your Stash (paper clip, string and pearls)
3) Try It On Tuesday - Use Your Stash (paper clip, string and pearls)

A very sweet card. No the colour is fine. It looks like periwinkle. I like your use of the Dymo.

Guess what? It looks purple on my screen! It's a lovely card - the bear looks so cute there perched on the notebook page, and the paperclip keeps with the stationary theme.Beautifully personal for the friend you've described - and it doesn't look childish at all, despite the teddy.

Love the office look to this card. The dynamo label is a treat. So perfect with your theme.
Your card is showing on my monitor as a bluey purple...but I can see the purple. I think we call is periwinkle or something crazy like that.
I had the same problem with my cardinal background paper. Funny how photos can be off from IRL!

The little wooden teddy is a sweety and great that you were able to tuck in that paperclip! Always good to use up some VOS.

Looks purple to me, Pia. A few things I absolutely LOVE about this card: the twine - so careless and random but perfect; the enamel dots - MUST get some; and the Dymo sentiment - how clever is that!
