It's all about purple!!

So when I saw my friend Sue had posted on her blog a very delicious color scheme for the Play Date Cafe Challenge, I just knew I had to play for fun, here is the color scheme:

Aren't these colors lovely, I admire this bouquet of flowers so much!! Yummy! And here is my take on the challenge:

Love Always Mom

I used the Hydrangea stamp from Hero Arts, again! I just can't seem to put that stamp away, it keeps following me! In variation to the other Hydrangea cards I've made, I decided to color this hydrangea one with four different colors, a dark eggplant, a lavender, cream and a very blush pink.

To make the background paper, I used white cardstock and distressed it with Milled Lavender distress ink and embossed the Flourish Background stamp with white EP. I stamped the hydrangea again before I did the embossing.

This card is also for the Hero Arts April Challenge of Home and Mother's Day. If you haven't joined the challenge yet, why not? Give it a try, really lots of fun!
