Purple is the colour...

Hello lovely bloggers,

I have been meaning to post a card but just could not get down to it... 
Here is a card I made a while ago and I like how it turned out.
The background stamp is from Kaiser craft (I think) and the sentiment is from Spellbinders. Used punched flowers with pearls in the centre, a feather and  a butterfly to finish it off. On the left, I created this faded look with the same stamp with the left over ink on it. I did not re-ink it but just randomly stamped it on the cardstock.  I did the same on the right as well. I like the dreamy effect that it produced. Would love to know what you think?



I will enter this card in:

Wish you a pleasant week ahead.

Much love,
Monica
