Color Dare 87

This week's Color Dare is Perfect Plum, Concord Crush and Chocolate Chip. Well, I don't have any Concord Crush so subbed in Elegant Eggplant. The lighter purple is a scrap of unknown origin which I am calling pseudo Perfect Plum (hee, hee). Hope you have a chance to play along this week. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team and their fabulous designs! (ETA - I did this post in advance and forgot to add these links - oops!)

This card is also for Clean & Simple's Fall to Layout 118 and for the SCS Clean and Simple 95 (Flower accents) challenge this week.

The only thing I have to say about it being the first of December is - how the heck did that happen? I just realized something - I must have used the 2009 page for this calendar page cause the days of the week are incorrect... ok it's official, I'm losing my mind. Be sure to download the A Muse charity calendar if you haven't yet!

Thanks for stopping by. If you are needing more inspiration, check out my sketch challenge from Monday. If you missed out on yesterday's post, be sure to check out my exciting news.

Here's another amazing (and easy) recipe for you - Thai Coconut Curry Butternut Squash Soup. I made it with local squash... so yummy with the hit of Thai red curry (my fave).
