Just be you

I recently looked at a few of my projects and realized I hardly ever use the color purple.  Why is that? Since I couldn't find an answer to that question I decided to create something using shades of purple.
I built the easel card on a gray cardstock and added a second layer of patterned paper. For the border I used a Martha Stewart punch and a ribbon. I added a fee handmade spiral flowers, embellishments and a sentiment. I made the stopper a little narrow that usual using the same punch as the border.

Created for:

Pile it on #26 - Make your own embellishments
Quirky Crafts #13 - hand made flowers
Crafty Cardmakers#71 - create your own flowers

Creative Card crew 1 butterfly, 2 colors (purple and yellow), 3 words.
Divas by Design #40 - to "die" for
Paper Play #25 - use a die
Allsorts #160 - any die will do

Have fun creating!
