Purple Hydrangea

I need to add to my thank-you card stash, so I made this card with a MFP hydrangea image and sentiment. I colored the flower with Copics, adding some speckles and splatters with lavender ink, some stickles to the flower centers, and a piece of purple twine. The edges were sponged and distressed, then I placed this on a smoky purple cardstock base.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

MFP Stamp Challenge #17 - use the color purple as your main color.

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Some great shading on this pretty hydrangea, but I'm really liking your touch with the spatters! The extra detail added a lot of interest to an already lovely floral. A perfect design for your Thank You stash! TFS & Hugs

This is pretty. I really like that it is tied with real twine (you know instead of a imaginary twine.... lol, I mean a stamped version).
