me and purple (Touch Twin challenge TTC03)

If you've been hanging out here with me for a while, I'm sure you know my feelings about purple.
We don't play nicely together.
Perhaps, because my school colors were purple and gold. . .from 3rd-12th grade.  In high school, I embraced my purple panther pride, and even decorated a Christmas tree ALL in purple.  I wore a purple letter jacket, and painted a purple paw print on my cheek for every football game.
But now. . . me and purple?  Not so much.
And the girls on my design teams KNOW THIS.  They know this, and we joke about it.  
"PLEASE", I'll say, "PLEASE don't make me work with purple!"

So a few weeks ago, I got a box in the mail with some free product, for being published in the August issue of CARDS Magazine . . .a whole package of SEI patterned paper. And of course PURPLE was one of the main colors!
And when I won those two Touch Twin markers, last month. . . . (you know where I'm going here, don't you?)
What color was one of them?
Yes, of course it was.
PURPLE.
But, I love these markers so much, that I was willing to make PURPLE work for me.  (And I decided to dive in and use that SEI paper too!)
This week's challenge (TTC03) on the Touch Twin challenge blog is to create a card with florals.  I used my purple Touch Twin, and also a green water based Tombow marker for the leaves on my flower
Now I know this is sort of a weak excuse for a FLORAL card. . . .but the fact that I used PURPLE should make up for it, I'd say.  
And flowers are flowers, no matter how small.
If you'd like to join in, visit the Touch Twin Challenge Blog for the whole scoop on the challenge! 
(But if you win the 12 markers, you and I are NOT friends anymore! giggle giggle!)

Maybe calling Purple, Aubergine would help!

I love your Aubergine card.
