A Vintage Style Thank You

I made this card to show my thanks to the wonderful group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that I am a part of:  The Pretty Pals.  It's an delightfully eclectic group of stampers of all types, styles, and backgrounds and a continual source of encouragement and enthusiasm.

I wanted to stretch (just a little) outside my comfort zone and style for this card so I decided to reach for a color that I rarely use:  Rich Razzleberry.  I mixed it with Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum, and a pop of Summer Starfruit.  I really love the results!

It has the vintage appeal that I love and the purple colors give it a very regal, royal appeal.
