Sweet Pea Purple Autumn

Would you believe this whole card came about all because of that 
strip of DP along the left side?
Of course the beautiful image "Purple Autumn" by Artist Ching-Chou Kuik
(plate 129) doesn't hurt either.
I trimmed it out of the pretty backdrop though so if you want
to see this image in all its' original glory click

and check it out!

Supplies used:
DP by Prima "Fairy Flora"
flowers from cake aisle at Michael's "Table Confetti"
(these were airbrushed with Copic markers)
gems and pearls from $1 section at Target
Doily Die by Cheery Lynn Designs "Italian Flourish"

I made the aqua background paper by smooshing ink pads
across glossy cardstock since I did not have any of that
color on hand. 
I also airbrushed the doily diecut to match.
(it does match in colors but scan doesn't show it) 
When cutting an intricate die such as this type it works very well
to place a piece of wax paper between die and cardstock.  I had no problem getting all the tiny 
cuts to fall out.

Thanks for looking and thanks for stopping by!
