Pretty in purple...

Hello Blogger friends!

OMG...I'm so excited to see the number of people joining me is going up!
(That means there'll be more people to play along when I start my challenge blog...yay!)
Thank you, thank you, thank you

Anyhow, I'm here today with the first of three (yes 3) cards that I created today for a couple different challenges...

Here it is :o)

This creation was inspired by the layout from my last creation
I ended up loving the simple layout so much that I wanted to use it again (and again in the future, I'm sure).
This is a submission for 2 challenges:

The Play Date Cafe #157


CAS-ual Friday #78 (Using torn paper)

Here's closer view:
Despite looking a bit on the 'retro' side, I really like how it came out. However, I still have that sinking feeling that something's missing. If you see it, tell me what it is...I sometimes struggle with know when a card is really finished...I'm sure you know what I mean.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Please take a moment to comment and let me know if you feel like it's missing something and let me know how you deal with that 'I-don't-quite-think-it's-finished' feeling.

P.S. Join me if you haven't already...I'll be releasing details on my upcoming challenge blog very soon!
(I'll also me looking for a couple of members for the design team)

Have a great day :o)
