A flowery thank you card in amethyst and chocolate

Another thank you card today (you'll be fed up with thank you's by the end of the week, lol). 

For this one I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday:

For the colour scheme I actually got my inspiration from a car dealership we drove past last week. It had promotional flags flying and I thought "ooh, Almost Amethyst and Chocolate Chip, that's a nice combination". Hmm, perhaps crafting has taken over my life, lol.

Stamp Sets: Bloomin' with Beauty, Circle of Friendship
Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
DSP: Tea Party
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Stampin' Write Markers
Narrow grosgrain ribbon: Chocolate Chip
Rhinestone Brads: Circle Ice
Punches: Scallop Edge, Scallop Circle, Boho Blossoms
Other: Nesties

The central image is "watercoloured" with Markers. All the punched flowers were snipped between petals and the petals were then shaped around a crafter's needle.

I'm sure this won't be the last time I use this colour combo.
