Shades of Purple

The challenge this week at Make My Monday this week is Shades of Purple with one neutral colour and here is my take on this.

I began by inking my card and spritzing to give a lovely mottled background.
After stamping the image and sentiment, I continued with the background by stamping and embossing with Aurora Crystal embossing powder to give a twinkly effect.
The seam binding was coloured with Distress Inks and spritzed to wrinkle.
My parchment butterfly was embossed with clear embossing powder and microbeads were added for a body.

I finished off by distressing a purple mat.
I hope you like my card this week and will be inspired to join in, I love to see your beautiful and inspiring entries,
