Purple power

This is my design team card for The sweet pea stampers 'purple power' challenge that starts today. This will be open for the next two weeks. Please click on the link and see the gorgeous crafting of the rest of the team. We would love to see your 'purple power', using a Sweet Pea image if you have one, but, if not, join in with any image.

The shaped card blank was already decorated with a lilac pattern.I used Elaine Cox's Black Butterfly Fairy rubber stamp inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with copics. I mounted the cut out on to two pieces of offcut papers, rounding the corners of the larger one. Organza ribbon and flowers from stash. I didn't add a sentiment, but think perhaps one could be put at the bottom.
