IB161 Purple Blooms

Hey there, stampers!  It's Thursday, which means a new Inspired By challenge!  Isn't this a sweet breath of spring?

And here's the optional sketch:

I went with more of the sketch this week, although I did incorporate flowers and some of that pretty pink hue into my card!  Here we go:

I got this sweet W+9 Spring Blessings set last year but haven't inked it up much!  I chose to stamp the flowers in shades of purple (I am still challenging myself to use it, LOL!) and saved the pink for the little flower box:

I stamped some pussy willows on the In Good Taste DSP behind the flowers, then stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate and diecut it with a sweet little die from....surprise, Pierced Blooms!  Isn't that a nice little perk to add to those flowers?  My final addition was some sequins from my stash, but as I look at the photo, I may go back and substitute the pink ones for some that are a little more subtle!

I hope you'll come play with us this week and use this pretty bouquet as your inspiration!  Check out what the DT did at the Inspired By blog and then share your creation with us too!  Thanks for popping by!

This is so fresh - definitely a suggestion that spring is on the way! Love that sentiment too. Oh, and thrilled that my Pierced Blooms bundle has finally arrived so I can start creating with it too - I have had serious envy of your recent Pierced Blooms creations!!

So pretty and springlike LeAnne! I love the pink box with that cheery label and I really like the way you stamped the pussy willows directly onto the dsp. Vicky x

Oh my... THIS has me longing for spring and the smell of flowers! Such a pretty card, LeAnne!

Very the the dimension it gives. Well done.

SO pretty, fresh and fun, LeAnne! A perfect splash of spring in your soft colors and design. Like you, I like to challenge myself sometimes.Purple is not my go-to either! Looks so good here with that Soft Seafoam.
