The Squirrel and Fox and Jacaranda trees

Can you believe that it's already the last weekend of the month? What happened to November????? I hope all my fellow American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving this past week. Ours was just lovely! Lots of yummy yummy food! I had a lot of cooking to do, so I made sure to get all my stuffs

We have another great challenge for you on the Squirrel & Fox Challenge Blog--we have decided to let you be inspired by this gorgeous picture.
Isn't that a gorgeous tree?? It's a popular tree in Austrailia called a Jacaranda Tree--and it blooms in a gorgeous purple blossom! So be inspired!

Did I mention we have another sponsor???

One randomly drawn participant will receive a $5 voucher to her store!
So how was I inspired? Well if you follow my blog, you will notice that I like NEVER use the color purple and rarely use flowers in my crafting. So I decided to challenge myself with both...

Oh my goodness...I think I need to use purple more often! LOL! I absolutely love this card! I was inspired by THIS GREAT CARD. I pulled out some yummy goodies by Papertrey Ink--their fabulous white card stock, and then I used their yummy Plum Pudding for my purple inspiration. I inked up the great little floral set Flower Fusion #3 for the big and little blossoms. I finished it up with a fabulous piece of ribbon I've had forever and then a few iridescent gems around my birthday greeting (from the set Sentimental Birthday by There She Goes Clear Stamps).

We hope you will play with us this week!
