Bold Thanks

I love purple on cards, but it is a hard color to work with sometimes.  I had this circle in my "bits and pieces" stash and thought it was going to be difficult to fit into something.  But, I think it turned out really well.  It's bold, but the chevron paper and the pops of black hold their own against it.
 I stamped the flower twice, cut out one entire flower and the center portion of the second, and layered them together with foam tape for some fun dimension.

Sugar Pea Designs #19--sketch
Loves Rubberstamps #137--anything goes
Shopping Our Stash #187--Getting Inky: use your oldest ink.  (The gray ink I used on the flower and the chevrons under the sentiment is, if not my oldest ink, part of my first ink purchase--probably $1 per ink pad about 12 years ago)
Word Art Wednesday #169--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
C.R.A.F.T. #297--decoupage (my flower)
Brown Sugar Challenge #132--anything goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #92--anything goes

Stamps: Verve "Joyful Blooms" flower and "Better Together" sentiment and chevrons; Hero Arts "French Script" on the flower
Dies: Spellbinders "Standard Circles, large"; MFT "Fancy Flourish"
