Pretty in Purple'ish

Hello all!

I will be forty pretty soon and was given such a pretty ring for my birthday. To thank her I wanted to make the best thank you card.. Wow! Does this card fits the bill perfectly. She loves anything pink, purple and sparkly.

The translucent flower draws some of the color
from underneath giving it a kind of glow..
Very elegant thank you card. The border
has a velvet touch.
'you' is offset from the darker purple
showing a bit of dimension.
I usually wouldn't do such a vividly purple card but this color challenge from Color Throwdown just took me by surprise.. Upon opening up the blog I said that I had to do this! It took a few tries but in the end I think I got it.. 

Entering Color Throwdown #351
How to:
  1. Cut and scored white CS to A2 size
  2. Die cut the pink panel then distressed in purple.
  3. Die cut vellum flower then folded the petals to show dimension. Added purple circle and sequin to the center. Set aside.
  4. Die cut dark purple flourish then added it to the pink panel.
  5. Added purple velvet border to the pink panel and a thicker strip to the dark purple border.
  6. Added white string then adhered flower to the pink panel.
  7. Adhered the pink panel to the dark purple panel.
  8. Attached the purple panel to the velvet panel.
Well that is it for me today.. I hope you liked your stay and want to thank you for stopping by.  Don't forget to leave a comment good, great or otherwise.. I like to hear what you are thinking. Until next time take care and we will see you soon.

All the best,
Shawna
