SHADES OF PURPLE

I used a new (to me) stamp and die set today to make my card.  


The background was made by smooshing some ink on my craft sheet, spraying with with water and then smooshing the cardstock into it.  After it was dry, I die cut it and mounted it on a larger die cut.  The flowers and leaves were stamped with purples, teal and mint.  Lastly, added some Spectrum Noir clear glitter, sequins and the sentiment.  A very easy flower to stamp and with all the coordinating colors from Altenew there was little problem choosing what to use.

Thanks for your lovely comments and for coming by today.
