CASology CUE Card #80: Purple!

Today, the CASology TEAM and I give you PURPLE!
in it's REGAL glory!

This embossed and die cut card was done by using an Anna Griffin Plate
It was a larger plate that I cut down to what you see. I was surprise that once I added the rubber
piece, and used the die cut, it took this one try,
when I am happy with my new toys...(the first try!)!

Last week we had CONTRAST, and I know we had a refresher on CAS.
[And, being a scrapbooker, mini album maker - turned card maker, I know it is hard to restrain.]

For this card, here is how I am KEEPING it CAS:
1 Layer Card
1 Die Image
1 Color
1 Neutral Accent Color (Black)
1 Sentiment
Balanced Design
LOTS of open uncluttered white or "free" space!
Minimal Steps - Minimal Time = Easy to recreate!

Let's see how CAS
YOU can Get!!

This is a close up.  It looks like I have 2 flowers here, 
Nope, It is one and it was cut and embossed at the same time.  
Maybe I did it wrong, and the embossing portion shifted, 
either way, it is embossed on the edge appearing to be layered.
Then I just took a white signo uniball and put a few dots, stamped a sentiment
adhered the flower....
Done!!  EASY.

I think this card is richly elegant, yet still a single layer with some texture.
