Purple Bliss


CAS - Colours & Sketches Challenge #12 - Sketch

My card today is for the Clean and Simple challenge above. I'm always in need of a wedding or shower card and wanted to add to my depleting stash. I have a friend whose niece is having a shower and the color sceme is lavender.
 I've used stamps for Stampin Up "Just Believe" cling set (the circles) and the sentiment is from Hero Arts "Everyday Sayings". 
I wanted the circles to show because they are so pretty and therefore, added a vellum panel over the embossed white card stock (Sizzix paisley embossing folder). I then stitched because it's hard to use adhesives with vellum. The flower is Tim Holts tattered pinecone roll more like a rose.
