Square Flower Burst

I had a creative inspiration tonight and came up with a really fun card!! I was browsing challenges for the week, looking for inspiration and decided to combine the Clean & Simple sketch with the Create with Connie & Mary color challenge of the week. I love purple of any hue and couldn't resit the excuse to play with Perfect Plum!! :)

Here is the sketch


and the color challenge


and here is what I came up with:


I went with a square card to match the sketch. Card base is Perfect Plum with a Shimmery White layer. Another Perfect Plum layer accents the main image layer. The card features two stamp sets from the Summer which starts May 1!! :) The saying is from the Happy Greetings set, the flowers from Flower Fest. I love this flower set-it coordinates with several of our punches. Colors, per the challenge, are Perfect Plum, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi.  I sponged just a little Perfect Plum on a couple of the flowers. All of the flowers were stamped and either punched or cut out and attached with dimensionals. The stems or leaves were stamped with Wild Wasabi on the focal Shimmery White Layer.
