Easter in Purple

I paired up the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #245 with the Paper Lovin' Gals Inspiration Challenge #21 for this Easter card full of doilies.  As you can see from the inspiration challenge, I used the colors as my inspiration.

Concord Crush card stock is used as the base of the card.  I added a layer of Flirtatious designer paper.  A piece of Perfect Plum card stock was punched with the Lace 
Ribbon Border Punch, cut in half lengthwise, and  attached to the bottom edge of a piece of Cheerful Treat designer paper.  I then stamped the smallest doily from the Delicate Doilies stamp set on a piece of Perfect Plum card stock with Perfect Plum ink.  After being sure the ink was dry, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Delightful Dozen stamp set on this same piece using VersaMark and white embossing powder.  This layer was matted with Concord Crush card stock.  I cut off one
of the doilies from the Flirtatious designer paper and attached it to a piece of Wisteria Wonder card stock.  I trimmed off the overhang and matted it with Concord Crush card stock.  A Perfect Plum brad was added to the center of the doily.  After adding this layer to the card, I added the strip with the ribbon border to the card overlapping the bottom of the white doily layer.  The sentiment layer was then added.  A doily punched from Wisteria Wonder card stock with the Doily Triple Layer Punch was attached to a Whisper White card stock 1-3/8" circle and both of these added to a Concord Crush 1-3/4" scallop circle.  It was attached to the card using dimensionals.  The Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon bow was attached using glue dots.  Lots of doilies and lots of purple make for a festive Easter card.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope your week is turning out to be a good one and you're having some fun being creative.
