Purple Anyone

Today my card was made with no purpose in mind so it can be used for a variety of occasions.  Two challenges helped stimulate my mojo:  Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge #333 and Sunday Stamps Challenge #85.  

THE BEGINNING:  Card base is Whisper White card stock.  Layer of Rich Razzleberry card stock is next.  Matted pieces of Park Lane and Trim the Tree designer papers with Brushed Gold card stock and added to the card.
RIBBON STRIP:  Attached Gold Satin Ribbon to Whisper White card stock.  Layered a piece of Blackberry Bliss ribbon over that.  Added to card.
IMAGE LAYER:  Stamped two flowers from the Flower Patch stamp set on Whisper White card stock with Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss inks.  Cut them out with the Flower Fair Framelits as well as two leaves cut from Garden Green card stock.  The flower center (same stamp set) was stamped using Garden Green ink.  The center center (same stamp set) was heat embossed using VersaMark and Gold embossing powder.  The flowers were attached; the leaves added to the back; whole thing added to Brushed Gold card stock cut using the Circles Framelits.  Used Dimensionals to attach to the card.
FINAL TOUCH:  Three Pearls were added to the ribbon and one to the center of the flower.
I hope you enjoyed todays "purple confection".  And I certainly hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  Weather is perfect here today.

What a cool layout! I might need to CASE that sketch ;) Your use of the colours in the challenge is just the layered ribbon! Thanks for playing along at Sunday Stamps this week :)
