Gray and Purple all-occasion card with CTMH Bliss, Friendship, Opaque Pearls and Dimensional Elements

This card is a lift from the new Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book.  I loved the combination of gray and purple plus I have a ton of these flower shaped chipboard pieces I need to use up!

To make the flowers I embossed Silver on the chipboard and then applied Petal ink to the rest of the piece.  I've also used section of the large brocade pieces in the February SOTM "Friendship" to create the gray swirls under the flowers.  If I was going to make this card again I think I'd get a darker and more dramatic purple for the flowers though - something more like Gypsy.  I do like the softness of this color combination too.

If you'd like to make this card, get these supplies:
Paper:  Bliss Level 2
Stamps:  Friendship (February SOTM), Playful Flourishes (retired but Cherished Flourishes is a great subsitute)
Inks:  Chocolate, Chocolate Marker for stitching, Petal, Gray Flannel, Versamark
Other:  Opaque Pearls, Silver Embossing Powder, Dimensional Elements Perennials (retired)
