Lots of Purple!!

Well, to be exact, Concord Crush!  Found a challenge tonight that inspired some creativity!  I've been struggling since I got home.  Haven't done much of anything all week!  The artists though at Pals Paper Arts have a monochromatic color challenge this week, specifically purple!  LOVE purple!!!  So I had to give it a shot!  Not the best card ever, but a step back onto the creative path.

Card base is Concord Crush.  The background is DSP, in Concord Crush, that I ran through the Big Shot in the Elegant Lines embossing folder and then sanded with a sanding block to reveal the white core.  A Concord Stitched-Poly ribbon is tied around the bottom, and the saying 'because I care' from the Level 1 Hostess set of the same name.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone brads to the embossed image because it needed a little something else, and nothing else seemed right.  Enjoy, and hopefully I'll have some better creativity flowing tomorrow!
