Joan's Gardens Challenge #13

Wowzer! Joan threw in lots of little criteria for this weeks challenge! Stop over to Joan's Gardens and check this one out!!! We had to use rich, deep purple, use a Pendant die or make something similar, and use a border punch! Yipes Stipes!

This whole card started, because I got a new MS punch that I wanted to create with. It is the Quilted corner punch. As I was playing, I realized it was just like a piece that a Pendant die would make. I also added Dusty Concord Distress Ink to my collection, yesterday. The papers are all scraps from my stash, with the teal color being Bermuda Bay. For my border punch, I used an MS but unsure of the name. My flower is made from punching 8 layers of tissue paper, with a large 5 petal flower punch, and inking it in the Dusty Concord with touches of Fiber Scraps Tintz. The little butterfly stamp is from Judith and has touches of Stickle for sparkle. I added a gem flower center and larger deep purple gems up the side as accents. The sentiment is from Me & CarrieLou.

Have a glorious day, my friends! Thanks for stopping by.
