    I love this card, Mary! I almost never use purple and this makes me want to go and create a card using some purple!

  9. Mary, this is Elegant, I love those colors together. In fact just yesterday I was trying to chose a design for a purple and lighter Wisteria for a card. Here is the perfect combo.

    Thank you

  15. Beautiful card! Question. If the base is the elegant eggplant, how did you handle the whisper white? Was it wrapped around the entire base or simply cut and placed up to the edge?

  16. Your card is very elegant, love the color and how simple it is. I will b trying your creation.. thank you for shearing
