Bloomin with eggplant

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this stamp (Bloomin' with Beauty) and colour it! I used my beloved Copics and even though I'm not a huge purple fan I like how this turned out and might even use it more! The purple is Elegant Eggplant - a beautiful rich colour.




It was made for a family friend who's had a long stay in hospital - the sentiment on the inside reads 'Hope you have a speedy recovery' (from Stamping Bella). Such a handy sentiment to have on hand.

Hope everyone's still enjoying the snow - ours is all but melted now but it was fun while it lasted...wait...ooh it's just started again!!

Kate - I adore this card - so lovely! The details are scrummy and I love the colour combo - I woud not have thought to put Kraft with Elegant Eggplant but love it!

I hope your friend gets well soon

What a beautiful card! Your flowers are gorgeous and that is a fabulous purple color. I love the embossed border and how you sewed the top and bottom. So much detail!

Love this card. The colours are gorgeous and you've inspired me to use my crafters mat today (and it's so easy - glad I gave it a go).
