Less is More 49...Predominantly Purple

I made this card for Less is More's Challenge this week...to make a card with  purple being the predominant color.  I found this challenge just a bit challenging...purple is a tough color...as are shades of it(getting them to go TOGETHER), but  made a quick card:
The flourish/butterfly stamp is Inkadinkado, the sentiment Hero Arts.  I stamped clear embossed and used two SU markers for the butterflies(lavender lace and almost amethyst), certainly celery for the flourish tips.  I cut around 3 butterflies...bent their wings up and added some light purple rhinestones throughout the flourish at the tips with the celery.  Put lavender lace paper on the inside.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Lovely card. You've used such a pretty lavender color. I love the way you carry the colored cardstock onto the inside of the card. It's such an extra special touch. :) Ann Y.
