I'd Pick You

Today's card is for last week's Friday Potluck challenge hosted by Joanne. For this challenge Joanne choose an inspiration, you can see it here. I picked up on the purple flowers on the cups and came up with this card. The base is lavender lace, pure luxury white and elegant eggplant are the mats. For the flowers I stamped and heat embossed them before coloring, then after coloring with memento markers I went over the images with a versamark pen and heat embossed again. next I sponged so saffron in the center and perfectly plum on the outer edges. The pearls were white but I colored them with a copic marker to make the a matching color to my card. I have to apologize for my poor photography skills, today is a dark and rainy day here and so my normal mediocre photo skills are much worse today due to poor lighting.
Thanks for stopping by.

Memento markers used:
grape jelly, lulu lavender, new sprout, bamboo leaves, desert sand
