Predominantly Purple Again

I was at the craft store yesterday getting paper for my daughter's birthday invitations, when this gorgeous stamp ended up in my cart.  It was on clearance and too hard to resist.  Last night I had to ink it up.   It just called for purple, so here are two more quick cards for the predominantly purple Less is More challenge


Supplies:
Paper: PTI
Ink: Memento
Stamp: Inkadinkado

What a happy occurrence that this stamp ended up in your basket... it was obviously meant to be there because you've made a fab card with it!
Great job!
Thanks so much

I can't decide whether I like this better in the rich purple or the plum purple! I think it's a tie! Beautiful!
