Simply Create Too Challenge no. 106, Use Purple and Green

Hi friends, At Simply Create Too, the challenge no. 106 is to create something with the colors purple and green. I confess. I'm not much of a purply stamper. I know plenty of people who adore purple and there are indeed many shades of purple. So here's my card for the team challenge. Green definitely took center stage. I think a bit lighter hue might be preferred.  It's also quite blurry,

I used a creme base and the green mat is stamped with a Hero Arts BG stamp in versa mark. The flowers are a die and stamp set by Hero Arts. I stamped in versa mark, then used Ranger's distress green embossing powder. I colored the flowers with watercolor pencils and added some tickles for a bit of zing. The petals got a bit of zing with my Spectrum Noir glitter pen in clear. The sentiment thanks die is from Savvy Dies. The words, "You're the Sweetest," well, I've recently taken to purchasing only stamp sets with words, and for the life of me, couldn't find this one. It's stamped in SU craft white and embossed with white embossing powder. Some flat-back lilac pearls and round the card out. Now why don't you go and have some card-making fun, especially if you like purple and green.

 Blessings, Erica
