A Card for a Friend and a Challenge

I am so happy to be back posting a challenge card from Stamping 411. I had started by stamping this flower from Fifth Ave floral stamp set and coloring it by outlining with Elegant Eggplant marker and filling in with blender pen, then I cut them out. My friend, Kye Ann, yes pronounced like the pepper, asked me what I was going to do with those flowers and I said I have no idea. But when I started putting them on background paper they looked best on white and I wanted black and I matted it with black and it just came together easily. I ran the "vase" through the Big Shot inside the Elegant Lines embossing folder to get texture onto the vase.
The recipient of this card loves purple and loves pansies so I hope this card makes her very happy.

Absolutely stunning! I love your water coloring and it's very clever to use that punch as a vase. Thanks for playing along this week! :)
