Just Had To Do Another!

I know I've already created two cards for the Lily Pad Challenge but I wanted to do another, this time in some pretty purple shades.



Using Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord distress inks, I stamped them onto my craft sheet again, then spritzed with water. Taking the white panel with the white embossed Old Letter Writing, I smeared it around in the inks. I then stamped the inked panel with the Fabulous Flourish in Dusty Concord ink.

I don't normally say this but I really like the way it turned out!

I was looking for an embellishment or two to add to the card and remembered I had some of the Hero Arts Jeweled Flowers. I thought this one was perfect to finish off my monochromatic card.

Short post this morning as I will soon be heading out the door to go to work. Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for coming by! :)
