Pretty in Purple

Good Morning Friends!
It's my turn once again to share an inspirational sample at the Dies R Us Team Blog.  The dies I have used today are all available at the Dies R Us Store!  Have you seen the new companies added to the list ... WOW!  Be sure to go check it out ... they are truly becoming your

Today's card was created as an anniversary card for friends of ours! 
(She loves PURPLE!) and since it's my favorite color too, this was really a lot of fun to create!

Here's a list of the dies I used on today's card and a link back to their location at the store:

 Did you notice all the little purple hearts I've used as embellishments?  
They are actually the little pieces that came from the Spellbinder 'Heart Circle' die once cut.  They are perfect ... why not use them to embellish on your card front or the inside of your card!  
Too cute to just be tossed in the trash can!! 

Here are a couple close-ups ...

Look at the detail on these dies ... isn't it just beautiful!
A touch of purple Gelato has been added to the leaves on the flourish as well as
the center flower petal panel on the Sweet Williams.  
It really brought out the texture on these flowers and leaves.

I just had to use this adorable Frantic Stamper Hummingbird ... notice the HEART shaped detailing he has!  Perfect for this creation!  A little dab of Liquid Pearls was used for the flower centers.
