I have another card for my sister-in-law. She had hip replacement last week, then developed complications so the recovery will not be as easy as hoped. This is one of her favorite colors. IRL the embossed layer is a pale color, and for the base I used a purple lightly patterned with grey - you may be able to see a bit of that at the left. I used half of an 8.5x11 sheet, printed on the inside, and left the patterned paper for the back of the card as well. I used another of my new Darice embossing folders - Butterfly on Flower. I used the negative of the Elizabeth Craftdie cut, and tied a bow with shimmery, sheer pale purple ribbon. The card base is white - not sure why it does not show up at all.
