Very Purple!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Scored Lines 8 x 8 Embossing Folder. I lightly rubbed some Phill Martin Decadent Grape Gilding Wax over it.

I had cut the Couture Creations Touch of Love Die out of Coconut White Card and used it as a mask to spritz through some Decadent Grape Mister through for another card. Rather than waste it, I have used it here and matted it onto a piece of Rich Plum Card cut using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics.

I cut the 2 circle dies from the Couture Creations Frames n Frills Elissa Set together out of Coconut White Card and rubbed Decadent Grape Gilding Wax over it. I glued a piece of Acetate behind it.

I popped a little piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto some Rich Plum Card and cut the flower pot from the Couture Creations 2 Tags & Flower Pot Die Set. I peeled away the backing sheet and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow Glitter Jewels.

I assembled the card as shown adding a 5mm White Pearl to the flower, some White Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
