Purple Birthday

I needed to make a quick birthday card for someone who loves purple, so I started with one of my pre-made focals and put this together quickly. The border stamps (Grateful Heart) and dies (Vintage Labels Two) for the focal were from JustRite and the Rose was a small stamp from HOTP.  I colored the roses with gel pens.  I've gotten several sets of papers free with a card making magazine and wanted to use them up - so that's where the background paper came from.

The sentiment was made using a new set from HOTP - dies (6 Layered Labels and 2 Swirls) and matching stamps (Greetings and Labels).  NICE!  I cut and embossed the tag in the purple and then stamped the sentiment with embossing ink and heat embossed in black. 

The inside could be the front of another card!  It too started with one of my pre-made focals - once again using dies & stamps from JustRite.  I cut and embossed a white mat for it and then colored the outer edge with a black sharpie!
The border is cut and embossed with the border from Spellbinders "Fleur De Lis Accents" set.  I backed it with black paper and fussy cut the top edge.
