I used the Cuttlebug floral screen embossing folder for my background. This is a folder I don't care for all that much, but I do think it looks nice here. And textured cardstock just looks fab embossed! The flower stamp is Stampin' Up and the greeting is Melissa Frances.I used Stampin' Up Lavender Lace ink. The printed paper is a scrap of Chatterbox. It was the only company with soft purples in my stash! The little button brad is something I found at Oriental Trading Company a while back. I love finding cool stuff to buy in bulk...for cheap! And OTC is pretty cheap.

It's a Purple Monday
Well, as luck would have it my card for today fits two challenges! It's Monday, so it's my DT day for 365 Cards, and the challenge is to make Lavender your dominate color. And, lucky me, the challenge for today at Pile it On is to use Purple! I guess lavender is purple! For a person who does not like purple, I've sure used a lot of it lately! I smell a conspiracy!
Iris are one of my favorite flowers. My mother used to grow them when I was a girl. I love how tall and delicate they are. This stamp is of a set of 4 tall flowers. They make great bookmarks too! (Geez, I sound like an ad for SU don't I?! These companies owe me kickbacks for all the free advertising I do! LOL)
I am not sure I'll get a chance to play along at 365 Cards every day again this week. I'll sure try! It's been fun the past few weeks making a card for every day. I do have some cards for tomorrow, so come back and visit. And I'll have some AMAZING blog candy going up this week! I know you won't want to miss that!
