With Gratitude

This card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4." I used purple cardstock for the base. I then cut some shimmery teal cardstock 1/8" smaller and some striped paper 1/8" smaller than the teal. I used a Martha Stewart border puch to create my loopy fringe. I didn't adhere the loops down, so it gives it some added dimension. The flourish is cut from Cindy Loo (at least I think so). I cut it a while ago for something else, but wound up going a different way so I don't know what size it is. The leaf is from Straight From the Nest. I used my Gypsy to size it to fit the card. I stamped my sentiment onto the leaf with some purple ink, then heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. I finished it off with some bling. Enjoy!
I made this card for the following challenges:
