Joan's Garden Challenge

Hi there,
Hope you are enjoying your weekend (and that it extends through Monday!)
This card was done for Joan's Garden's Challenge  to use:
deep rich purple
embellish with a Spellbinders pendant die
cut out flower to be hand colored
punched border
whew!
LOL


really really enjoyed this challenge - but realized I am out of deep purple cardstock (how did that happen?)

Big flower is done with Heartfelt Creation's "Innoscents Flowers" Stamp set -I curled back petals and added flower soft to center - colored with Copics BV00, 01, 08 and V17.
The "leaves" were done with a Spellbinders corner die from their Pendant Fleur De Lis set. Punched border and small flowers were done with scrap dp - colored the mini pearls with Copic BV08.
Sentiment is from SU and stamped on scrap of Webster's and striped dp is from stash.
Ribbon is from stash.

my pic really doesnt do this one justice....
the stamp is a fav since it's the verse I go to for everything - I cannot imagine life without knowing and trusting that the Lord has it all in control (the good and the bad)
Proverbs 3:5-6
hugs
