Calendar Girls - June

Oh, I love my Calendar Girls!   We post monthly from SCS on the 28th.   No, you do not need to check your calendar, it is not the 28th and I am a wee bit late in posting!  

Our great challenge this month came from, Michelle.   It was to use a specific sketch and to represent something for summer.  Fun!

I am so not a purple or pink girl, well not so much.  So, I was surprised that I felt like making a purple card.  Of course due to the first statement, I have a ton of older than dirt Stampin' UP! Lovely Lilac paper!  LOL   Down the purple path I went.  You know I had to listen to this song while making my card!
Summer made me think of friends.   Purple friends!   Like my friend, who loves all things purple and will be getting this card!   That girl can find so many things in purple.  It really is an amazing thing!  She also knows her way around a Nordstrom like no one's business!

I found another older than dirt Stampin' UP! set Watercolor Garden, circa 2000, to use on this card.  I also have three embellies on this card received from three different SCS friends.   Perfect!

In my haste and having to make this card today in cracks of time, I am a tad bit off with the sketch.  The floral panel should be tilted.  I measured, cut and glued before I remembered.....my friend will never know if you don't tell her!

Please be sure and visit the rest of the Calendar Girls.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.  Thanks, for stopping by!

I love your card I just love purple and white together. I adore gingham on card it's very clean and fresh looking. Wonderful embellishments for the perfect finishing touches to your card. I love that ribbon. I saw your card on MIM. Take care

Love it! Great card! whats really funny, is I made a purple card too, and almost used the same stamp set! Thanks for playing.

I am not usually a purple person either but your card is really pretty ☺ Love the use of the papers you chose and it's OK that the layout isn't exactly the sketch, that's what makes this fun!!

Love it Tami!!
