Purple Dots

This is my second post for today.  If you receive this via email, be sure to scroll down for my Celebrate Blue card.

My second card made on the weekend incorporates three different challenges - Friday Mashup to use polka dots, the sketch from Pals Paper Arts and the colours from ColourQ.

I used a new-to-me set from Verve called Lean on Me.  I first stamped the flower in Memento Angel Pink ink then colored using my Copics.  Once that was finished, I stamped over the image in Versamark and white-embossed.  This is a trick from Jennifer McGuire.

The leaves were die-cut from Xpress-it cardstock, then roughly colored using Copics.  To match the flower, I took my Versamarker pen and outlined them before white-embossing.

The rest of the card is fairly self-explanatory. 

Thanks for looking.
