Less is More week 49

Morning All,
Made a "deal" with myself this morning, I can complete one challenge then I must do paperwork! Well I was surfing to some of my favorite blogs and I checked out the Less is More Challenge. Their challenge was for your card to be:
                     Predominantly Purple

I was immediately drawn in as I love the combination of Stampin Up's in colors Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder. Here is what I came up with:

I really feel like the "white space" shows off the combination nicely. I have been dusting off and using my Vintage Vogue set quite a bit lately, its so versatile! Here is what I used:
Paper: Whisper White, Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder
Ink: Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder
Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue
Punch: Moder Label
Embellishments: Large and regular sized Sticky Back Pears (the large sized are new for the Occasions Mini!)

I did a modified rock and roll technique on the flowers. I didn't have the ink pads, just the markers. So I colored each flower and edged it with the darker marker then I cut them all out for depth and layered over that corner. I really love how it turned out and I think I will be adding this card to my Valentines stash. I love using non-traditional colors for cards!
Have a great day!
