The Card Concept 2

Hello friends,

Today's card was created for this week's The Card Concept.  I chose to go with Clean and Simple.  I've been busy with other projects, leaving little time to make cards. 

My card:

The card base is Whisper White, with another layer of the same, but I added some texture with the cuttlebug embossing folder Grace's Frame.  The pretty flowers are from SU! Stippled Blossoms.  I inked the flower with Perfect Plum ink and stamped it off onto some scrap paper one time prior to stamping it onto the white card stock.  The overstamp was also inked in Perfect Plum.  I didn't have my stamp-ma-jig on hand, so I simply eye-balled it.  The leaves were stamped in Wild Wasabi ink.  The sentiment is from SU! Wetland, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  Lastly, two small pearls were added to each flower.

I'm also linking up to Word Art Challenge #116 - Anything Goes and CASology Week 80: Purple

Thanks for taking a peek,
