Magnolia Stamp Lovers/Friday Sketchers/Roses on Paper

Three challenges in one. For my card today, I have incorporated the following challenges...

Magnolia Stamp Lovers
- The Color Purple
Roses on Paper - Layers
Friday Sketchers - Sketch Challenge

Here is my card...

Stamps: Strawberry Tilda (Magnolia), Sentiment from SU!
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke, Tracy Porter (Colobok)
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink
Accessories: Silk ribbon, charm, Wild Orchid Flowers and Leaves, Spellbinders

I blended Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord distress inks, blending until I got the look I wanted. I just received an order of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, so I really wanted to incorporate the new gladioli stems into my project. I decided to replace the flower in the stamp image with the gladioli.

I used a gardenia and two small roses as well as a couple of leaves for my bouquet. I wanted to add a little darker shade to my flower, so I colored the edges with a dark blue Copic's pen.

I hope the rest of your weekend is fantastic! Come back Tuesday for another Sweet 'n Sassy card.
