Purple Flowers

If there was ever a day where craft-therapy was necessary it's today! My morning has been the biggest *head desk* moment... it's really a good job I'm largely a pacifist.

This card is based on a fab sketch from The Sweet Shop #147.

A very simple card, I love the CAS look of the sketch and immediately knew what I wanted to do! Two pieces of card from the papermill to layer, in mid-purple and lilac. I then stamped the sentiment and a variety of flowers in three different shades of purple papermania and added a few embellishments to give it a little bit dimension.

I used stamps from a variety of sources and I can't remember where they all came from... I know at least one was stampin' up... also can't remember where the sentiment came from... the embellishment flowers came from bargain books craft bin.

I'm also submitting this too:
