Guest Designer at Inspired by Stamping

I am so excited to be the Guest Designer this week at Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenges.  To play along you need to use the colors in the following photo:

My card really is dark purple, Pansy Purple in fact.....just my photography skills are lacking in capturing the actual color!  So think purple, not burgundy!  My tiny bit of light blue is included in the center of my flower. My card is based on the amazing sketch this week at Retro Sketches by Kim S!

My flowers and leaves were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped with the coordinating Girls Rock stamp set.  My sentiment is a sneak peek at the upcoming March Stamp of the Month.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
S1303 Floral Happiness
C1538 Girls Rock
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
Retired Pansy Purple Cardstock & Ink
Retired Garden Green Cardstock & Ink
Tuxedo Black Ink by Memento
Z1327 Blue & Green Sparkles
Retired Olive Brads

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:
Incy Wincy Designs-Pop It Up
My Craft Spot-Flowers
Sweet Stampin-Sweet & Simple
Use It Tuesday-Fasteners (My brads and cardstock have both been hoarded away!)

Thanks for stopping by!
