Little Red Wagon #220

It's Wednesday and time for another challenge from Little Red Wagon.  This week is Rosanne's turn to post the challenge and she has chosen a colour challenge.  She wants us to create something inspired by Pantone's color of the year - orchid (purple).

I decided to create a card and used my Copic markers to color this adorable image from Sassy Cheryl.

I have to begin by saying that purple is one of my least favourite colors [sorry to all the purple fans out there] and I had to dig really, really deep to find a paper in my wagon that I could work with!  I finally found this sweet dotted paper and then I started coloring the snowman to match.  It wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.  In fact, purple and I may have a newfound respect for each other!

And there you go!  My very first purple card! I hope you will join in the challenge this week and link up your card at Little Red Wagon.  We always love seeing what you create :)

I am also entering this into Sassy Cheryl's challenge - Winter Blues.  Even though my card is purple and not blue, it does have her adorable winter image on it!


  1. Love the purple and the postage stamp frame!! This is just fantastic Joanne!!

  2. Hmmmm...don't know how much respect purple has for you since you insulted it like that. You're lucky you made such a fabulous card. Perhaps it will forgive you.

  3. I love what you did with the challenge! You rocked it! I too am not a fan of purple! Awesome job!

  4. Gorgeous! You do amazing things with those copics :)

  5. Love it.....poor forgotten purple has it's day!

  6. Adorable card. I love the image. Such beautiful shades of purple. As a fan of purple this card would be one that would make me happy to receive. Great job.

  7. I think every snowman should have a purple scarf! Such a cute card!

  8. Your card is very pretty. I would also have to dig deep before working with purple.
