A Sketch and a Color Challenge

I made this card to coordinate with 2 challenges. First is the SCS CC258 to use Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, and Soft Suede. The second challenge is a sketch from CPS-154. I'm a huge fan of anything purple, but I'm not sure the soft suede is working for me with these colors. Ah well, you win some, you lose some, right? :)
I started with a vintage cream base, stamping it with the polka dot backgrounder in soft suede. The dark plum panel was embossed with the Victorian folder, then smeared with Versamark and embossed with clear ep. The pale plum panel was embossed with the swiss dots ef. The heart was punched with a SU heart punch from soft suede, and finished the same as the dark plum panel. The sentiment is a stamp from Michael's $1 bin, stamped in perfect plum and highlighted with a pale plum marker. Ribbon is soft suede by SU! and the flowers were punched with a SU 3-flower punch and have silver heart-shaped brads in the centers.
That's it for me today..........make your day a great one :)
