Modern elegance

The first color combo in the paint book was this one they call "modern elegance". I actually LOVE it even though there was a lot of purple. Here is a shot of just the card. I did the black embossing on the purple in a really roundabout way. I inked a white glossy sheet with orchid ink, then stamped the backgrounder stamp with versamark and clear embossed. Then I ran a black inkpad over the raised area. I really like the look it gave. And I did a little detail on the inside too:
I'm sure you all already knowbut the gray is HOT right now. I don't think much about orchid/purple at all, but turns out it looks fab with gray. I actually love this purple card.
All these stamps are by Cornish Heritage Farms.

The purpleness of this card and the fact that you made it are shocking to me. But's it's very pretty ... so I guess I can see you overlooking the whole purpleness thing, or at least accepting it for now.
