The challenge for this week at The Card Concept is monochromatic purple and the style I used is "clean and layered".  Not my "go to" color, but I did like pairing it up with light green leaves.  Only used two stacked layers of cardstock for the "happy" and offset it slightly for sort of a shadow effect.  Stamped the leaves and flowers before putting in the dotted background and finally fitting all together.  Today Yana posted a video doing layered diecuts in case you're interested

Stamps: HA; Wplus9
Inks: PTI; Memento
Other: PTI die

Thanks for looking and your kind comments.  Betty
