My aversion to the color purple

Is there a color you almost never use? For me, the color is purple. I just don't gravitate towards that color. Ever. One of my friends at work needed a birthday card, and she wanted it to be purple. Oooookaayyy, I thought, now what. Luckily, I had found some American Crafts ribbon on clearance and I had some purple in my stash (hey- just because I never use the color doesn't mean I am not LOADED with supplies in the color!). So this is what I came up with. I love the cuttlebug for texturizing cardstock. This particular folder looks great for a wedding card as well. Needless to say, my friend loved the card and I made a few more of these to keep in my stash.

What's the color you are least likely to use? Maybe it's time to challenge yourself!

Stamp: PTI
Ribbon: American Crafts
Cardstock: Bazzill and Stampin Up

Ok, I have an aversion to purple too. I do like PTI's plum pudding but don't care for lavender moon all that much. 95% of purples I see I dislike. Your card is lovely!

Ok, I see that Leigh Ann really doesn't like purple LOL!
Hmmm for me it is either yellow or orange, but purple is not all the popular either. I'm a pink and blue kinda gal! Greens are ok too. Love your purple card though :>) The embossing is so pretty.
