Purple Flower

**If you are looking for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ post for this week, please scroll down!**
I really like the color purple, although I was not too sure about putting it with green and brown, it turned out really well. Thanks Color Throwdown

For StampTV the challenge was to make a flower or embellish a flower, I chose to make a simple flower. I hand cut out some leaves to put with the flower. This was not a difficult card, it came together easily. 

I really like that saying probably because I really like flowers. My roses are wonderful this year and my new hibiscus is so pretty! The geraniums are sad right now - they will be happier when the weather cools off some. I do not have any purple flowers!

That is about it for for now, but you know I will be back with more.

Thanks for stopping by - I really appreciate all of your comments!

I experienced the same apprehension as you about combining purple with brown and green! Your card works really well! Lovely flower, too!
