A lot of purple flowers

I decided to join in on the Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC91) over at Flourishes this week.
I’ve also added my card to Wee Memories scrappy Saturday challenge, this week’s theme is “Free for All”.

For the Timeless Tuesday Challenge, the card submitted were supposed to be inspired by a Cafe Baudelaire print (click on the picture to get to this picture on
Now how was I inspired by this picture? I noticed the soft purple color and wanted to use a lot of purple on my card. I also saw how the motive was framed in, so I wanted my focus point to be framed in as well. The folds on the dress inspired my ribbon. Then there was also some flowers, so flowers became a big part of my card too.

This is what I came up with:
Front:Card spellbinders flowers purple
Stamps: I used “
Floral Swirl” from Clear Dollar Stamps as my background. I first used my minimister filled with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Reinker and water, and sprayed the background. I dried it with my heat gun and then stamped the image. The background was colored by Letraset Promarkers, color purple, amathyst and Marsh Green. My sentiment is from AmyR Stamps Friends Sentiments from All That Scraps.
Spellbinders Lotus Borderabilities Petite, Classic Lace Border Grand, Big Scalloped Border Grand, Fleur De Lis Pendant and Fancy Tags.

Embellishments: I used
Tim Holtz Liquid Pearls White Opal to mark the center of my flowers, as well as a brad to hold my ribbon together.

Detail:card detail spellbinders fleur de lis lotus border big scalloped border
Inside:Stamps: Again I sprayed white paper with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Reinker and water. I stamped HCPC 3323 - Large Elegant Word Background PreCut Set with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink Pad and used my heat gun to dry it. You can’t really tell from my photo, sadly.
Spellbinders Decorative Photo Corners.
