Purple flowers

Good morning! Wow it's dismal out there today! Still no baby here so I've been making more cards :-) This one is for this weeks Muse challenge card by Vicki, I used her fab card as a sketch for mine, and I used the Monochromatic Purple theme from this weeks Card Concept challenge. Mine falls into the Clean & Layered category I think. I'll slip it into this weeks Spring Flowers challenge at Simon Says Stamp too. I used an old Kaisercraft pad for the paper, it's the only one I can think of that I own that has a lot of purple in it. Then I used this Mama Elephant Water Blooms set stamped repeatedly in various purple inks and cut around each of the flowers. I went over the leaves in Vesramark so I could emboss with a little silver too. I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by!


Supplies;
Stamps - Mama Elephant 'Water Blooms'
Sentiment - Clearly Besotted 'Spring Flowers'
Inks - Stampin' Up 'Wisteria Wonder', 'Perfect Plum' & 'Elegant Eggplant'
Die - Mama Elephant 'Dainty Bow'
Paper - Kaisercraft 'Lilac Avenue'
Other - clear gems, silver mirror card & silver embossing powder
