Purple and Yellow

My best friend in Junior High loved the color combo of purple and yellow. I kept telling her those colors didn't match. I was wrong, of course. But try telling that to a 13 year old. (Gee - I should have saved this for my friend's birthday, oh well. She seems to have moved on from yellow and purple.)
Anyway, I hope this card will be a bright spot in November for a lovely lady in Assisted Living.

The idea for the round card folded at the top came from Kristina Werner's blog. I used my Cricut to cut but you could also do this with circle cutters just leaving the top joined.

This ribbon has woven threads to create the daisy design. I frayed the edges so those little threads peeked through. I'd done this with fabric strips before but not ribbon. Love the effect.

Have a great weekend! (I know I'm going to have fun. The mail carrier just brought a box of goodies from Two Peas!)

Ingredients: Stamps: Baroque Motifs for some extra design on the flower, Petal Pizzazz from Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Purple from unknown source, Certainly Celery and Whisper White for SU!

Ribbon from Walmart (as best I can remember)
Flower from Hobby Lobby
Chipboard letters from unknown source
