nix the neutrals

We take turns at picking themes over at Seize the Birthday and this week is my turn! I'm all about bold colours so I decided to go for non-neutral backgrounds for our theme. I let this card be all about the rich purple background.

Hope you can have some fun with your backgrounds! Be sure to check out the blog to see the colourful creations our Surprise Party Guest Jen and the rest of the team came up with.

Wishing you a terrific day and wonderful weekend.  Thanks for popping by.

  1. Love the dark purple! And the embossed background that is just right for cocktails! ;)

  2. Love the rick colored card base for your card. It looks great embossed.

  3. Oh the embossed background with your stunning purple is fabulous! And of course it looks like a bit of celebrating is going on with the drinks! Thank you for this challenge, it is a very nice change the always white card! Heart Hugs!

  4. Thanks for making us think outside the box when I comes to backgrounds. We sure got some great ideas here. I love that bold eggplant background on this card. The circles remind me of bubbles in champagne.

  5. Your embossing folder was a wise choice as Barb mentioned. Now you have the bubbles to go along with your cocktails. You made a great selection on our topping too. Hope your weekend was extra special.

  6. I LOVE that color background. So rich with the martini. LOVE the embossed background. It is amazing!

  7. The deep purple looks so chic and goes with the cocktail perfectly! Awesome CAS card again!

  8. Gorgeous purple and I love the texture from the embossing, love how you've angled the sentiment and drink too, Cathy x

  9. Argh!! Now why didn't I use purple!?!! Loving the look of the embossing with that purple, I think anything would have gone with that background - but the bubbly does it justice!

  10. Fun card! I love the bubbly embossing, and the theme, of course ;). Cheers!
