Purple Anenomes

Hi and welcome!  The sketch today at Just Add Ink was drawn by yours truly, so I hope you'll check it out.  Here is my card (I wasn't in my usual CAS mood when making this, that's for sure!)

The patterned paper is from CTMH and a gorgeous bold gold and white stripe.  I die-cut the centre with a rectangle die and added another patterned paper in the negative space.  The sentiment was gold-embossed onto a black die-cut tag and the flowers were ones I coloured for fun when I was playing around with a NBUS stamp set by WPlus9.  I decided I liked the bold purple colour so used them on a card.

Thanks so much for visiting.  The JAI design team have some gorgeous cards for you using the sketch, so please head on over and check them out.

I'm also linking this up to the Anything Goes challenge at The Flower Challenge and the Patterned Paper Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
