Partial to Purple

Yes my friends, a color challenge right up my alley.  I love all things purple and over at The Play Date Cafe blog this was our lovely color palette.
  So pretty, yes?  Well I wanted to make a quick little gift box for a friend's birthday so I used these colors.
I used Close to My Heart colors Petal and Orchid Bouquet (retired, but still one of my all time fav's).  The box is a pizza style box random stamped with birthday images.  The bottom layer of the center embellishment has
Lavender glass beads.  The top part is embossed with clear EP and colored with markers.  Finished off with a coordinating gift tag.  Here's a detail shot of the embellishment.
I also love curling ribbon, every thing's better with curly ribbon:-)  Thanks for coming by, stop in again soon.  I'll talk to you later.
