This is a card that I created recently and was inspired by this beautiful purple designer paper by Moxie. They have a whole line of cancer awareness and hope papers in all different colors. I love them all and was rather happy with the way this purple one came out.
The paper is double sided and on one side it's these fabulous hope ribbons intwined with the word "hope" scattered about. There is also a flourish in the corner which gives it that added elegance and I think the flourish on the paper is really what led to the rest of the design.
I just got the new Spellbinders Fancy Labels 2 and just knew that I had to put it with the elegant purple paper. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up set Delight In Life and thought that the sentiment was perfect for the theme of this card so I stamped it in Perfect Plum. I sponged around the oval section while it was still inside the die with Perfect Plum ink also then added some glitter to give the oval more of a border and some glitz. I placed a tiny little pearl on the center of the flower part of the sentiment. The white layer behind the sentiment was embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder then I added the Martha Stewart border to the bottom of it and wrapped some purple satin ribbon around it.
To top it all off, I added some pearls, purple rhinestones, a large purple bow adorned with a vintage silver and white button center.
I was very pleased with the overall look of this one and I hope you are too!
