For You in Purples

A card that could be used for many occasions today.

1)  make a standard 4.25" x 5.5" card base in white
2)  add a slightly smaller rectangle that's been dry embossed
3)  add another smaller rectangle cut from Tim Holtz paper.  Rip the bottom of the rectangle, ink and paint it
4)  cut a banner and stamp with sentiment
5)  die cut leaves from bronze textured paper, spray with water, scrunch, spray with Lindy's Stamp Gang Red Hot Poker Orange mist
6)  using Ranger Glossy Accents, glue leaves into place
7)  die cut flowers in three different shades of purple/lilac, spray with water, scrunch, glue layers with Glossy Accents and spray with Lindy's Stamp Gang Open Arms Amethyst mist and Ranger Biscotti Perfect Pearls mist
8)  glue flowers on top of leaves with Glossy Accents, adding the twist of tulle at the same time
9)  place pearl stick pin into the floral spray
