Violet Crush.....

Hello All,
I finally found some "me" time to work on a few things I have been hoarding for awhile!!
Awhile back I discovered this new line from Kaisercraft called "Violet Crush"....
It is so pretty, but every time I went to order it, it would show in my cart out of stock....
but I did manage to get the ephemera package.....
and let me tell you, it is full of wonderful "yummy-ness" !!!!
I also snagged a few 12 x 12 sheets, to go with!!


I saw the sketch this week for "Mojo Monday" and this card just fell into place for me!!


I decided to use a black card stock as my base since I still had the half sitting
on my table from the card I made the day before!!
I layered a piece of SU Perfect Plum CS on, 
which I had run thru my SU Decor Dots EB folder.
My thought was, that the dots would match the piece of Violet Crush DS paper,
which had dots on it...funny thing is, 


I entirely covered up the dot designs with the layers..lol
I cut my "square" from SU Basic black CS, using a Spellbinders die "Fleur De Lis
Everything else came from the ephemera pack....
I wish they made a camera that took 3D photos, as each little piece is "popped" up!


I love how this card turned out and am entering it in the following challenges...
Oh, and don't forget to go to my top post and sign up for my "blog candy"!!

Ohhhh, I know, this paper is so pretty! I've been seeing it around a lot so it's no wonder it's always been sold out. A very special shade of purple with all those pretty elements. The black gives it such great contrast and drama. Beautifully put together and fabulous job with the challenges!
