Less is More - Predominantly Purple

The challenge at Less is More this week is just that - Predominantly Purple. One of my favourite stamps to use at the moment is from the SU Hostess set - Simply Soft, here is my card



I have used a variety of Stampin' Write markers to colour my flowers in starting with a pale pink (Blushing Bride). This was then coloured over with Wisteria Wonder and finally some Concord Crush was added to deepen the colour. The sentiment from Vintage Vogue was stamped in Concord Crush. I couldn't bring myself to leave the flower stems so I'm afraid I used some Pear Pizzazz too!!
Thanks for looking, bye for now - Jacqueline xx
