A bit of Violet

Good morning everyone.  Today I am sharing something a little bit different.  This is a card I made using an aperture card blank.  I cut a piece of card slightly smaller than the card blank with an aperture slightly larger than the card blank so that it forms a frame.  I then attached a trellis die cut to the back of the aperture.  The die is a Hobbycraft Intricut die.  I have two of these now and I love them!

I die cut the flowers and inked them in various shades of purple, then shaped them using an embossing tool.  The flower dies are all by Crafter's Companion.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink an embossed it using white embossing powder.  I layered it onto white card and then stuck it onto the middle of the trellis.

Finally, I attached patterned paper on the inside back of the card so that it can be seen through the aperture.

I would like to enter this card into this week's Alphabet Challenge, which is V for Violet.
