Sisterhood Sundays - An Inspiration in Purples

Hi friends! Well - it's Sunday already (where does the weekend go?!) but the good thing is that it's time for another Sisterhood Sunday's Challenge!   This week we have a collage photo inspiration - don't you just love all these shades of purple, pink and green?    And we've got flowers, cupcakes, trees and desserts to inspire us!
And here's the card I was inspired to make 
I stamped the pretty wildflower bloom (#496-12) in Sweet Plum on a white panel.  Then I sponged the edges with both Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord.  I embossed a square Nestability on the card base, sponged the edges with Dusty Concord, tied the ribbon around the card in two bows, then adhered the white image panel inside the square with foam tape.  To finish it off - I stamped the sentiment (#200-04) along the bottom edge and added rhinestones to the flower centers.

I hope you'll join us in the Sisterhood Sunday Challenge this week - you will find all the details on the Stampin' Sisterhood Blog. as well as more inspiring samples made by some of my Stampin' Sisterhood Sisters!
