Purple Bridal Bouquet for PPA

          The PPA challenge this week is to use 3 shades of purple - Blackberry Bliss, Elegant Eggplant, and Perfect Plum.  I was kind of stumped until I saw a picture of a beautiful purple bridal bouquet, and I thought, "That could work!" 

          I stamped the handle and a few leaves using Mossy Meadow and the Painted Petals stamp set. I took the sentiment from Your Perfect Day and stamped it onto Whisper White.

          I punched several flowers using the 3 colors with the Pansy punch, Petite Petals punch, and Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower punch.

          The bouquet is "wrapped" with Blackberry Bliss thick twine.  A few random pearls dress it up a bit.  The base color is Blackberry Bliss.

          It's so pretty, I want to stick some Baby's Breath in it and carry it down the aisle!!!
