The color purple....

The Impression Obsession Design Team is all about the Color Purple today, that was the challenge. As always you can play along with us for a chance to grab $25 to shop at IO! Check out all the details on the Impression Obsession Blog. Check out what purple delights the team cooked up for you today: DinaJulieJeanneLaura, Vicki and Deborah.
 No Copics, again. Simple heat embossing for this card. Since the challenge was purple, I started by choosing the purple paper that had little gold flecks in it, which led to me  choosing the gold paper. I stamped the flower four times on the purple paper, cutting out different layers. I crumpled them up, but still wanted them to have more texture so I ran the pieces thru an embossing folder too. I stacked them up with foam tape in between each layer. I also tucked some leaf pieces under the flower too.
I added the get well strip banner along the bottom, adding a 1/16" border with Perfect Layers Rulers. I was so glad to see this new Get Well Clear Set with this last IO release... it has everything you could need!
