MMSC30 for Sister

I just got this card in under the wire for the MMSC30. With all the holiday fuss, these challenges seem to take a back burner lately, but I needed a birthday card for my DH's sister, so I made it a double whammy and made her card using the sketch.
I started with Prism papers in the Majestic Purple shades of dark, light & medium. The card is much brighter IRL, but I just couldn't seem to get the photo right. I used the Nesties Blossom for the center, and a CB ef for the vertical panels. I tied a piece of white tulle with thread, cut the ends and glued that to the center of the card, then placed the blossoms on top with some tacky glue. The sister sentiment was done on circle punches and both sentiments are by SU! and done in elegant eggplant ink. A few kaiser gemstones and her card was done.
I'll have another card today, so stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!
