I wanted to use Elegant Eggplant since I haven't used it for a long while but couldn't decide what to put with it so I brought out my Color Coach to give me some ideas. On the side of the Color Coach is a Dynamic Duo combination and this Dynamic combo is Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum and went for that and they certainly look good together.
After cutting the flowers from the die, I put them in the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and ran them through the Big Shot. Sponge a bit of Perfect Plum on the edges and work with the barrel of a pen, or marker and curl up the ends.
I had a piece of Very Vanilla that had been cut out with the Top Note die and run through with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder sitting on my table discarded from another project. It looked like it would work well on this card and VOILA! Using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch (p. 201 in the IBC, #119275, $22.95) I punched out a piece of Elegant Eggplant and snipped the points to layer onto the middle of the Top Note piece.
Add a Vintage Brad to the centre of the flowers and one of the cute little Trinket Keys (p. 24, Occasions Mini, $7.95). Finish the card with a sentiment from You're a Gem (p. 25, Occasions Mini, #122268, $17.95 WM, #22270, $14.95 CM). Stamp it with Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink, punch out with the Oval Punch and sponge the edges with Perfect Plum ink and pop it up on the card with Dimensionals.
