Violet Thanks


I just love the new Year of Flowers: Violets set from Papertrey.  Not much to say on this card. It's pretty straightforward. 

I was inspired by this card from Debbie Olson.  I inked the blossoms in Vineyard Berry (CTMH) and the leaves in Ripe Avocado.  I colored the centers with a gold gelly roll glitter pen and adhered a few gold half pearls to the centers.





All Papertrey Ink unless stated otherwise

Stamps:  year of flowers: violets
Paper:  scarlet jewel, stampers select white, true black
Ink:  vineyard berry (CTMH), black (memento), ripe avocado
Accessories:  gold gelly roll pen, gold half pearls, paper piercer
