Papertrey CMWC8

Another Papertrey challenge - this was a sketch and you were to use any colors you wanted, but they had to be monochromatic. I needed a birthday card for my aunt and she loves purple, so that was an easy decision! Though the flowers look like they're stamped directly in the windows, I actually stamped them on scraps of cardstock and cut them out. Then I only glued down the center of each flower so that the petals are raised up off the card for a little dimension. I'm really happy with how it turned out in real life, but couldn't for the life of me get it to show up in the picture! Oh, and I also wanted to add that the sentiment is stamped in Elegant Eggplant, (the color that's on the far left) not black as it looks in the photo!
