Playing with my stamps

I was feeling slightly stressed when I made this card and it quickly dissolved it lol.  I had this Justrite stamp in my box for a while and this is the first time i've used it!  I have a couple more I need to christen too so fun to be had.  I'm going on holiday in August so i'm trying to save which means no more stash for a while (this is going to be so hard!!!).

This card came together so quickly and easily and I like the clean bright white edges for a change.

How I made it
Anyway on to my creation.  I am addicted to the colour purple its my most fav colour ever!!  So I had an ink i'd never tried before too so I just had a go to see what it looked like and I really love it.  This stamp was so easy to use and I had no problems trying to get a good image.  I love the richness of the colour so I decided to set it off with clean simple white.  I embossed the white with a Crafters Companion embossing folder and made 2 layers with it and the purple.  I used a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp and embossed it with a purple wow powder then cut it out with a SB die and cut a purple layer behind it.  I used purple and white card from the papermill and I cut 2 flourishes with a Tonic die.  I added purple flock ribbon from my stash with a flower shape & gem from my stash too.  Then used 3 mini SB flower die cuts with white half pearls in the centre and found a small lilac butterfly and added a pearl to it to finish off.  If you can let me know what you think i'd love to hear from you.
