It's a cute sketch. I didn't round the corners because I was afraid with the big scallops on the blossom die that it would be too many curves, but now I think I should have. I don't heat emboss much anymore because I have issues with it warping my cardstock. Pretty sure this is user error. You can't emboss resist without it, though, so I pulled out my SU Irridescent Ice, Versamark, and the butterfly from GinaK's Take Flight. No warping, but I think I still managed to overheat it because the right side of the butterfly wasn't very sparkly. I die cut it with the largest die in the Nestabilities Blossom set. After sponging it with Memento Grape Jelly and Lulu Lavender I added a smidge of stickles to balance the shimmer back out.
Now, I'm not a super purple person. I like it. I like to wear it. I just don't create with it because I have a hard time finding colors that look good with it. I pulled out severals papers from my mountain o'papers and decided on this one from the Basic Grey Lily Kate collection (making it older than my first child). Very springy, but I hope not easter eggish. The sentiment is from My Cuppa Joe. Stamped it in Grape Jelly on a kraft strip and punched the ends with a square punch to make notches and glued everything down with the pink ATG gun my mom gave me. That's pretty much it. :)
