Hi, Diane with you today!
This week our challenge theme is Purple Ride.
Now, doesn't a purple bike sound like fun?

I started my card using a pretty A5 Bellisima designer paper pack
for my background.
Using  So Silk Fabulous Purple 130# card stock,
I cut a bike with Impression Obsession Bicycle Die Cut Set.

I added a Memory Box Woven Basket die cut from
Pearlized Esse White 105# card stock.
An alternative basket die cut you could use is 
Memory Box Bountiful Basket.

I filled the basket with tiny Impression Obsession flowers,
that had been colored with PanPastels Flower coloring kit-Susan's Gardens,
using the Magenta color included.
The center of the flowers have tiny Black Pearls.

For a pop of color I added a tiny butterfly cut from
Memory Box Butterfly Heart.
A quick note on this die, is I die cut it, then I just
snipped off tiny butterflies as I needed them,
making this die useful in a very different way!

A few greens were added to the basket, then I finished with a sheer
bow that I added a Lavender Pearl to the center.

Thank you for visiting with me today!
