Say It With Hearts And Flowers

Hello there, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We actually had snow down here in the South although it was of the blink and you'll miss it sort! It was there first thing on Saturday but gone by 11am. It's still very cold though - brrrrr!
Today we have a new challenge for you over at Make My Monday and the theme chosen by Joan is rather romantic as it's Hearts and Flowers.
I've been slightly naughty with my inspiration piece as I had one of those weekends when I had quite a lot to do and I couldn't make anything work on the creative front. Then when searching for something else I came across a card I made a while back when I was a contributor to Craft Stamper magazine and as it was long before I had a blog, and fit the theme rather well, I decided to share it here. Hope you like it!

A bit of purple passion as you can see!
The background paper was made by spraying a piece of inked paper with water and scrunching it then flattening it out and rubbing a little purple ink on the raised areas. the text was then stamped on with VersaMagic Perfect Plumeria.
The Rubber Stampede image was stamped on cream card with VersaFine Imperial Purple ink and the a mat was added. The mat was made by heat embossing the edges of the card with plum and gold embossing powder.
The flower petals are Technique Tuesday and were stamped on cream card with the purple ink and cut out. The flower centre was made with a chipboard circle heat embossed with the plum embossing powder.
The card was assembled as you see, adding some plum grosgrain ribbon and a gold heart charm.

Have a great day and a lovely week.
