Purple Bloom

Wow, have we been having some thunder storms over the last two days?! No problem I thought, I'll do some crafting instead of going outside........ah!, with the power cuts we have no electricity..... so NO Internet! Aaaah!

So, today I've made this card while I can surf the net for challenges to enter in

I coloured the flower with my AP and markers and laid it on 3D pads on some purple and blue embossed cards, that were then laid on some brown card stamped with wood design. Some blue and purple silk threads were wrapped around the base, and a sentiment and butterfly added. To finish it, I placed some leaves around the flower, and randomly added some pearls.

The sketch is from Mojo Monday,

the colours from Stampin' Royalty, ( I also used a crumb cake bg like one of the DT, so I hope this is allowed?)
