Purple flower thank you

I got some purple markers and decided to try them out on this card.  While purple is my favorite color, I have a hard time using it in my crafts because I think the different shades of purple are hard to coordinate.

I colored the flower stamp (a very old one from Dollar Tree), stamped the sentiment (Hampton Arts), and added bling.  While the bling appears blue, it is actually purple.  The fancy cut is a Cricut cut from a swap.   I layered the green paper (K & Co) with the purple cardstock (Recollections), punched the top edge with a Fiskars punch, and wove hem tape in for my bow.

  1. Purple is my favorite color too, and this card looks great! I agree, there are so many shades of purple to match up, but you've done a great job with those flowers! Love the lace too :)
