Purple Birthday for last day of Divas Tone on Tone Challenge

Yes Diva friends, end of July already!! Today's the final day of our July Die Cut Diva Tone on Tone Challenge. I'm part of the end of month inspiration post & couldn't resist a purple card (see a previous one with Birch Press Design products HERE if you missed it). 

Supplies: Paper - Neenah white; Paper Studio black & glitter;
Hero Arts designer purple (shadow layer - retired);
Lawn Fawn Rainbow Perfectly Plaid
Dies - Birch Press Design Big Birthday Sugar Script Die;
A Jillian Vance Design Mini Slimline Backdrop Set
Other - Copic Markers BV000, BV00, & V28;
Dusty Concord Distress Stickles;
SSS Sentiment Strips All Things Happy;
Prima flower

Our Fabulous July Sponsor!!

I chose to make a mini slimline card since the birthday die works so well with it. I was enabled to purchase this die by Diva Cindy (Escape to Stamping). She sent me some cuts of it earlier this year (thanks again, Cindy!!). The Prima flower started purple but was so pale as to seem pink to me. So I hauled out the Copic markers and purpled it up a bit, adding some Distress Stickles (hard to see) to the center. Coloring the petals stiffened them up and allowed me to curl every other one.

Bonus: I made some cards with Cindy's die cuts way back in March & I'll share the one I photographed. It's not tone on tone but I thought I'd share it since I forgot earlier. 

Supplies:  Paper - Paper Studio; Doodlebug; 
whatever Cindy used...
Dies - Birch Press Design Big Birthday Sugar Script Die;
A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop
Stamps - Hero Arts CL139 Birthday Messages (retired)
Other - stars from an old Target Halloween sticker set

Definitely a different look on an A2 card size! I thought it would be fun to fill in behind the birthday die cut with some circles, a sentiment tag and some enamel stars. Very quick and easy!!

You have until 9pm Pacific time to upload your tone on tone project. While we're using Birch Press Design products, you don't need them - just be sure to use a die cut or embossing folder and this month's theme. Hope to see you in the gallery!! Check back tomorrow at Die Cut Divas for a new challenge and on August 3rd for our July prize winner ($20 to Birch Press Design)

Thanks for stopping!

WOW, I love both cards. My heart drew me here on seeing the purple card and then that 2nd card hit me over the head with another WOW.
