This is a card I made for a friend who has been very ill. She loves purple, so I decided on the Magenta card stock with purple accents. I was looking through my paper stash when I came aross the Presto Patterns Specialty paper (retired). I realized it would be perfect for this card because I could sponge and shade it easily to get the effect I wanted.
I was inspired by a card I found on Two Happy Stampers blog. You can check it out here.
The stamp set (Mixed Bunch) is one I've been using a lot lately. The leaves were punched out with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch. Other supplies include Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, purple buttons, baker's twine, Tasteful Trim die and Sizzix Big Shot, Fancy Fan embossing folder, Blossom punch, 3/4" circle punch, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi and Basic Black card stock, Magenta card stock (retired), stampin' sponges, Stampin' marker.
