Thrifty Thursday

Happy Thursday and welcome to another edition of Thrifty Thursday where the My Creative Time Design Team uses scraps and recycle and things you would generally toss in the trash. For my card today, I've used paint chip samples. I am not at all a purple person, so this is out of the ordinary for me, but the person I'm thinking of is a lover of all things purple and inspired me to use these colors today.

Little closer view of the heat embossing. The paint chips take the embossing powder beautifully! I wasn't sure if it would work well or not, but it really did.  The jumbo word stamp is from the You are Fabulous stamp set. I also heat embossed it for greater impact. Love it!
