Purple & Wildflowers!

Hi again! I'm back with another card, this time a one layer card for this weeks Less is More challenge. I asked Jamie to pick any colour so I wouldn't spend 18 hours on choosing which one as my card blank! He said purple, and so I got to work with one of the new MFT stamp sets, white ink, white embossing powder and some purple ink to make this silhouette/shadow picture. I masked off an area for the sentiment then drew in some faux stitching. I hope you like it, thanks for popping in! I've managed to cram loads of crafting in today and I think my mojo is back! Yay! Back tomorrow :-)

Like it... I love it!!! I swear you'd used an acetate overlay because the dimension effect is amazing... I told myself I didn't need that stamp set... may have to review that now!!
