Inka Thanks

Hey, I think I'm getting warmed up for next month's stampin' club card swap theme, which is monochromatic! Anyhoo, here is card number three for submission to Inkadinkado's INKAfriends Gallery. I used the stamping off technique on this. I love how easy it is to get two (or three, or more!) shades of the same color. The Inkadinkado stamps used were Floral Flourishes for the images (and yes, I used more than one image) and Garden Flower for the sentiment.

The background cardstock is Stampin' Up! Perfect Plum, but it seemed a bit plain, so I used VersaMark ink and one of the corner flourishes to stamp in each exposed corner on the right. Nothing like making your own designer paper, 'eh? :-)

The main image was stamped with Close to My Heart Pansy Purple ink, and the darker purple cardstock that was cut with the Martha Stewart border punch was also CTMH Pansy Purple.

I don't remember where I got the purple brads, but they were a perfect match for the Perfect Plum, lol. More
Taylor's Tiny Twinkles were used, and some Martha Stewart ribbon completed the card.
