MTSC64 Beautiful Violets

Today I FINALLY had the chance to play Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!  I have to say, I really love Mercy's Sketches!!  I'm also using the new ODBD set called The Lord is Risen which is perfect for Easter cards, although I can see that I'm going to be using these beautiful violets A LOT!  :)  There are a lot of exciting things happening at ODBD to celebrate their second anniversary starting on Saturday morning (US time)!!!  There are challenges and candy galore culminating in a special reveal on the 17th!!!  Make sure you stop by the ODBD Blog each day for details!!!  :)

Back to today's card; I started with a base of purple bazzill and layered with white (pierced) and lighter purple.  Next I added a piece of Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue DSP and punched one edge with the Martha Stewart Lattice Arch Punch.  The next panel is more white, this time punched with the EK Success Dotted Wave Border Punch and layered with more Lilac Avenue DSP.  Over the top of both panels I added some light purple satin ribbon.  Finally I cut a piece of white with the Label 1 Nestabilities and lightly sponged the centre with Lovely Lilac Ink.  I stamped the violets from The Lord has Risen in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with markers and a blender pen and then cut them out and popped them up on foam tape.  To finish I added the verse from the same set to the bottom of the card, a few Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the top corner and a bow made with the Bow Easy to accent the ribbon.

Stamps - The Lord has Risen (ODBD)
Paper - Purple Bazzill (2 shades), White, Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Lovely Lilac
Accessories - Label 1 Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Lattice Arch Punch, EK Success Dotted Wave Border Punch, 1/2" Light Purple Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

Beautiful! Elegant! Lovely!
Those are some of the words I would say to describe your beautiful card! I love the layers of purples, the Swiss Dots, the silver emossing looks INCREDIBLE...
I love the brightness (Is that a word?) of the white. It really helps the silver bow POP!

Thank you for sharing this!
Happy 2nd Anniversary!
