Card Concept.....Here for You

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!!

Time for another new challenge at The Card Concept Blog.

Here is our inspiration piece for this challenge:

I was inspired by the pretty purples and white in this photo for my card.

It is no secret how much I love this new Stampin Up hostess set called Best Thoughts. 

I used Wisteria Wonder and just a touch of Blackberry Bliss to watercolor this flower, the leaves are Garden Green.

Wisteria is such a pretty lavender color and I love a square card and this large flower image lends itself very well to making a bigger size card. 

I add some glimmer paper to the card cos...well, cos I love it!!

I have not used the antique brads on anything in a long time and decided to pull them out for this card.

Be sure to hop on over the the Card Concept Blog to see what the rest of the girls did with this challenge, I know you will find a lot of inspiration and varies designs and interpretations of the inspiration piece. 

Thanks for coming by today!
