A recent commenter reminded me that this eggplant cs could be called aubergine (French for eggplant - I certainly knew that!).  What a difference a word makes - so much more elegant sounding LOL!    I have been working on Beccy's month long Christmas challenge - and the end of the month is soon.  This is for #26 - to use the style of a favorite card maker for inspiration.  Mine goes back a while.  For a long time Roxie Glaza (aka Rox71) was moderator of the sketch challenge at SplitCoastStampers, and I was a faithful participant.  During that time, I learned so much and developed my addiction to card making.  Roxie is such a talented artist - I certainly do not want to claim anything near that talent but my style of layering was influenced by all those sketches!  You can check out her blog here:
The colors are aubergine and cream; the stamp is Stampendous, and the sentiment computer generated.

Hi Dorothy, it's an honor to know I inspired you! I was just looking for an old sketch card in the gallery myself to find the measurements I used. I hope you're still enjoying the RV and seeing lots of country.
Great job with this card and it's layout, those borders look perfect!

I agree that "aubergine" is far more elegant than "eggplant" Dorothy

Whoops... sorry about that! My finger was faster than my brain!
You did a wonderful job creating your aubergine and white card Dorothy and I think you did a great job emulating Roxie's layering style. Well done!
