Primarily Purple Challenge card

Hello!  I hope you are having a good day!  I'm enjoying the fact the I've gotten another card done that I really like!  lol
The challenge over at Less is More is Primarily Purple.  I chose one of my favorite digi stamps from Designed 2 Delight and colored the flowers purple.
The patterned paper is from The Paper Studio and the punch is Martha Stewart lace border punch.  I just love that punch!!! 

 I added 4 brads from my stash, some rhinestones in the flowers from The Paper Studio and I-Rock gems in the lace border punch.  The digi is printed on white paper, which seemed to stand out too much from the cream colored bacground of the patterned paper.  So I inked the edges in purple, smeared the stamp pad a little around the sides, and then applied purple chalk over the whole paper to tone down the white a little bit.
 A little pop-dotting to add some dimension...

And a nice sentiment stamp from Pink by Design to complete the inside.  What do you think?  You like?  I hope so!  
Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you have a wonderful day!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Less Is More - Predominantly Purple
Designed 2 Delight - Guest Designer Challenge
Whimsical Wednesday - Border Challenge
