BD Wishes in Shades of Purple


Had to make a card for MFT Summer School Lesson #10: Monochromatic & used MFT Sketch #237.  I was having "felt flower withdrawls"--LOL, so looked through my felt colors & decided on Grape Jelly.  The MFT Rolled Gardenia is one of my favorites, but practically needs a box to mail a card with it. Since a local friend is about to have a birthday--perfect chance to use it! The leaves are one of my latest purchases--MFT Layered Leaves.  I drooled every time I saw them used by Kirsty or Mona, so finally gave in & got them--even though I have quite a few leaf dies. Have to say--they're worth it!  I cut them from a lighter shade of purple cardstock & covered them in Wink of Stella.  The beautiful MFT Fishnet stencil (from a sweet blogging friend) was spritzed with Tattered Angels Rum Raisin.  I used a doily from another sweet friend, Alexandra, & love how the stenciled image shows through a bit.
The sentiment from MFT Peaceful Wildflowers was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black & I finished off with a black enamel dot & 3 lavender gems. I'm also entering Anything Goes at SSS Monday & Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
