Purple Keep It Simple

Hi all! I was able to get a couple hours of crafting in today.  I wanted to do a simple card and thought this sketch from Sketch Saturday was just the perfect sketch to do that.  
I started with a purple card base (wild pansy to be exact).  I cut a piece of purple plaid patterned paper and added it to the bottom of the card.  To the top half I added a piece of light purple card stock that I embossed with a flower embossing folder from Cuttlebug and then I rounded the corners off using a corner punch from EK Success. I added a white ribbon across the center where the two papers meet.  I layered a light purple paper daisy onto a slightly larger white paper daisy and then layered them onto a large purple paper daisy. I added a purple rhinestone in the very center and 3 more on the ribbon.


 I am entering this card into the following challenges:
