LIM - Predominantly Purple

Hello there, I thought I'd participate in the current Less Is More challenge this week. Due to illness I have missed the last few weeks which I have hated since it's one of my fave challenges. Anyway, this week's theme is Predominantly Puple ... right up my street! So I have taken a white card blank and stamped the stems from the PTI Daydreamer set in SU! Certainly Celery ink and then added the flower heads from the PTI Flower Fusion 8 set in VersaMagic Spring Pansy ink. The sentiment is from the PTI Peaceful Garden set stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I have then punched notches in the side of the card and wrapped WRMK Lilac Breeze Floss around and tied in a bow at the front.




STAMPS: Papertrey Ink. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery & VersaMagic Spring Pansy. CS: Craftwork Cards. TOOLS: Handheld hole punch. EMBELLISHMENTS: We R Memory Keepers Floss.

Thanks for visiting me today. I hope you are all well.
