Concord Crush!

Hi everyone!  Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments about my first blog hop!  Sorry I haven't posted this week, since it is now August I have started getting my classroom ready.  I can't believe how fast summer is flying.  I did have some time to craft today so I made a birthday card for my aunt.  I hardly ever use purple, not because I don't like it, I am just an earth tones girl and I get in a comfort zone of colors and am scared to branch out! Ha!! :)  But I LOVE the new in color called Concord Crush.  So I decided to use it.  Now I have concurred my purple fear.  Here is an upclose of the ribbon Pear Pizzaz.  This is such a nice soft ribbon to work with.  I stamped my flower image with white craft ink and then embossed.  I love how it popped out on the Concord Crush paper.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!
