More Spring!!! Are you excited?  I am very excited and I want to color these gladiolas in every shade.  However, I started with  my very favorite color,  purple.  I had thought of  using a border punch on the outside edges of my image panel, but opted to go softer.  I tore a bit of mulberry paper and then sponged the edges and did some delicate embossing.  I hope you like it!
I offer my apologies to those who tried to come by earlier to see my post.  We had some high wind warnings forecast for all day yesterday.  Earlier in the day, those winds claimed the power at work and last night, it knocked out our internet, cable and phone!  Thanks for coming back!
Have a great day!

Toni, it is so, so pretty in the purple and I like the softness with the mulberry paper. I never think to use it...thanks for the reminder.

Toni - really glad you started with purple - one of my favourites too! You made a really lovely card and the mulberry paper works so well.

Way to rock the purple. Lovely card and flower :)

Glad you are back online and made it safely through the storms!!! We had them on Monday. It knocked out our power for 6 hours and internet for 18! I had just a bit of panic since I hadn't finished blogging Thur/Fri!! YIKES! It all came back in time though.

Back to the card!!! LOVE the gourgeous shading you treated your Glads to! Beautiful color and I love the delicate embossing!
