Lavendar Birthday Wishes

Happy Saturday everyone:)
I made this card for a friend who ordered a birthday card with the color lavender. No Problem!! I always have plenty of that color around, since it's my favorite color! For this card I used the 3 shades from the Majestic Purple Prismatics paper pack. I used the darkest shade for the card base, then embossed a white panel with the CB birthday ef and added a piece of lavender ribbon to the top. The flowers at the bottom were done in all 3 shades, using a Sizzlet floral die cut, EK rock fern punch, MS fern punch, 2 different flower punches and a purple Kaiser rhinestone that just doesn't shine in the photo like it does IRL. I tried to take several photos of this card and they all had a lovely green tint to them, so I put a piece of that gorgeous Wisteria dsp behind it and I finally got the white color to come through. It probably would have photographed better outdoors, but it's cloudy today and about to rain, so this was the best I could do under the circumstances.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and for those NASCAR fans out there like me, enjoy the all-star race tonight! GO TONY!!
