Purple Onion...

So - I tried out for a DT...for Purple Onion Designs. I made it to the final round, but I didn't get picked. That's ok though. I tried out. That in itself was a big step for me!

I can honestly say - I just hit a HUGE mojo block when my stamps arrived from Michele, and I just couldn't make them work....it's too bad, she's got some great images...if you get a chance, you should check them out.

Now that all is said and done, I can share some of my submissions with you.

This one was fun - a bit of sparkle, a lot of shimmer...

This next one was simple...yet I love the colors on the leaves... and a wee bit of sparkle there too

see the detail...there's the sparkle ;)

THIS one is my favorite though. I just picked up this paper at CKC Hartford...and though it was the last project I made for her - it was my absolute favorite!!!

Soooooo, tell me, which one is your favorite, and why???

Thanks for stopping by!!

All three are great, but I love the simplicity of the first one. Great job on trying out for the design team! It won't be long before you are on one.

Good for you for trying out! I like the simplicity of the first two cards (and the little sparkle!), and I really like the color combo on the third one, too. That paper is awesome!

What were they thinking not picking you? And I guess I must have been under a rock for not knowing. I really like the second one - simple but vibrant! Good for you for trying!
