Special card

My son's fiancé has a birthday coming up. She loves purple and turquoise  shades - as you may know I love these shades too so this was a pleasure to make.
The background was stamped using Artemio flowers using Shaded Lilac distress ink. The panel was smooshed with turquoise shades and stamped with a Lavinia Nigella seed pod.I mounted it on to an embossed cut down tag
I added a die cut flower and a sentiment from my 'emergency' box at the caravan.I hope she likes it.

I haven't joined Hel's Sunday Stamper challenge for ages - she wants to see what we do with our backgrounds(her tag is gorgeous as ever)
so I will link to the challenge which is Week 231 Moon Shadow

I will also link to
The Artistic Stamper - Anything goes
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Anything goes

Thanks for looking, Chris

Oh Chris. This is gorgeous. Your use of that embossed tag was genius, and your colors were perfect. I know she's going to love it, and if she doesn't, she doesn't deserve to become your DIL (grin).
